Something like this:

${exec sensors | grep 'CPU FAN'| cut -b 20-27}


${exec nvidia-smi -q -d MEMORY | grep Used | cut -c39-45}

The cut bit displays what is in those positions. If the positions on another machine are different than this cut location will not work out.

or exactly

Code: Select all
