Good idea to disable unused monitoring?
#1
Hello,

I'm using HWiNFO sensors in parallel with Rainmeter. Obviously I'm not using all the data provided. I'm pretty heavy on disabling useless things in Windows and in apps to keep it clean and fast. I was wondering if it was good practice to disable unread monitoring values to lower usage and maybe even extend longevity? Does it change anything? Is there something else I could disable?

Thanks!

If you don't need those values, then I think it's a good idea to disable them. Even though HWiNFO is designed for the lowest possible overhead and memory footprint, reading values from some sensors can take certain system resources (i.e. CPU time), in some cases this can be significant (in case of some EC or SMART sensors depending on driver).
