9 I love that this is back for Fedora34 (and new KDE), it is by far the best system monitor widget. What I'd like to be linked to the new system monitor when I click the widget, instead of going back to the old one (or having it be at least a toggle)

Thanks for the feedback. You can change it to open the new system monitor like this:
1- Locate the plasmoid. Either /home/yourUserName/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer or if installed system wide /usr/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer

2- Locate the following file inside folder from step 1: contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml
The full path would be then:
/usr/share/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml (if system wide installed) or:
/home/yourUserName/.local/share/plasma/plasmoids/org.kde.plasma.systemloadviewer/contents/ui/SystemLoadViewer.qml

3- Find and replace the following in two lines:
Find: kRun.openService("org.kde.ksysguard")
Replace with: kRun.openService("org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor.desktop")
As I said, there should be two lines, just replace the name of application in kRun.openService("newAppNameHere")

Note: Keep in mind to do this again IN CASE the widget is updated.
Thanks again for your feedback. I hope I could help.

p.s.: there's no ".desktop" in the name to make it work, so just kRun.openService("org.kde.plasma-systemmonitor")

You are right, my bad, I copy/pasted the file name and forgot to adjust. Thanks for the hint.

That's pretty helpful. Thanks! If there's a way to add this variation to the GUI configuration in future updates, it would be perfect.

Am afraid I cant do that. With updates I meant updates from original authors (source link at the top) which I doubt will happen. So just change it and enjoy :-)
If anyone else has the skills to implement it, I would be happy to adapt the change so that we all get it.

It's just the right size for use in the panel where space is at a premium but you can see at a glance what the system is doing. I also like the fact that you can click on it and it will show the ksysguard window. Thanks Kuser!

10 Thank you. I like this this compact style that shows many information on small area. New widget is nice and configurable, but I was not able to configure it to have the same look and info.

10 Thank you so very much. I still can't quite understand the reasoning behind switching to new system monitor system which is beta at best. This widget will bide me over while it's being cooked.

8 Thank you! The new Plasma widgets are interesting and more configurable, but don't seem to be configurable to be as simple and well arranged as this.
Just one issue: I can't select "Show: CPUs separately". Does this option only apply to systems with more actual CPUs (?!). I would just like to see physical cores separately.
Ideas for improvement:
1) Optional labels (for each monitor)
2) Option to choose what application to launch on click
3) Option to make bars narrower ("Compact bar" option does not have outlines - hard to see the whole bar range)
Still almost as good as xfce widgets.

About the "Show: CPUs separately", it works only in "Compact bar" mode

Thanks for your input. This widget is the "original" widget from KDE devs without any modifications that I know of.
So am not going to add any changes from my side, not because I don't want, but because I don't have the skills. If there is an update from the original author(s), I would be happy to update it here as well. Every one (who can) is welcome to contribute changes/improvements...

Revert "Display cached memory"

v0.8.1 3 days ago

Contributed by garrywilliams (thanks by the way):
Make tooltip interactive

The tooltip can display so much data that it is impossible to take it
all in before it goes away when hovering over the applet. This change
makes the tooltip interactive so that the user can actually read the
data before it vanishes.

This change also restores the display of cached memory in the memory bar
chart. These two changes restore the behavior of this applet before
introducing Plasma required this new one.

Be sure to configure General->Monitor type->Compact bar and Colors->Set
Colors Manually and probably General->Show->CPUs separately. The
defaults are much less appealing.
