PiCockpit‘s App PiStats allows you to view live Raspberry Pi hardware usage statistics:

The values will be refreshed once every second. Here is a list of the data you can see with PiStats:

  • CPU load (across all cores)
  • Disk I/O total read (showing you a human readable sum and the value in bytes)
  • Disk I/O total written
  • Network total received data
  • Network total sent data
  • RAM available
  • RAM total (without VideoCore) – this value will reflect the RAM which is available to your operating system (e.g. Raspberry Pi OS)
  • Raspberry Pi uptime – how long has your Raspberry Pi been running since the last reboot or power up?
  • Root partition (“/”) total available – how much free space is left on your main partition?
  • Root partition (“/”) total used – how much space is used? (increases here should also reflect in Disk I/O total written)
  • SoC temperature – shows the Raspberry Pi CPU temperature
  • WLAN signal – shows link quality and WiFi signal level in dBm

A useful feature built into version 2.0 of PiCockpit’s PiStats is the search, which allows you to focus on the entry you are most interested in. Let’s say, you want to monitor the Raspberry Pi’s CPU temperature:

Raspberry Pi SoC / CPU temperature monitoring using PiStats
Simply type “temp” into the search field and only the SoC temperature will be shown
