I’m looking for some interfaces to monitor the use of the CPU and the temperature, i have already installed
lm-sensors for temp and
htop for CPU but i want something that shows them always in real-time in the bar at the top of the screen (the one which says time, battery% ecc.. sorry i don’t know how it is called) so that i shouldn’t always run the mentioned command from the terminal. I have Ubuntu 16.04.
I personally use system monitor extension for Gnome since it's an inbuilt piece of software and doesn't consume too much resources in order to provide hardware information and is a widget on the top panel.
It's also highly customizable so you can set refresh rate per the separate components like cpu, ram, disk, network, etc It also has swap, fan and battery options.
Here you can find more information on how to install and use it http://ubuntuhandbook.org

This is a quick-and-dirty way I use to monitor my system core temperatures.
watch repeatedly executes the following command until exited. By default, it refreshes every 2 seconds, but this can be changed using "-n " switch.
In a console window or on cli, execute
watch sensorsshows temps, refreshes every 2 seconds
watch -n 5 sensorsshows temps, refreshes every 5 seconds
My output shows:
Every 5.0s: sensors HOST-NAME: Wed Apr 15 08:13:57 2020 coretemp-isa-0000 Adapter: ISA adapter Package id 0: +45.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 0: +45.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 1: +45.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 2: +44.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C) Core 3: +44.0°C (high = +105.0°C, crit = +105.0°C)

There are ultilitys in lm_sensors, its all a bit non-intuitive,, fancontrol 1st, then pwmconfig

With psensor and real time measurement you need to be careful. I tried the program and I could hear by the fan of my laptop that the system-load created by psensor heated up the CPU non-negligibly. Somehow it prevented the CPU from idling. Now, with psensor de-installed the fan is less active. As the program only measures the temperatures and does not control the fan, at the same noise level the system should be cooler without psensor.
