There's also a slight leakage in the lua clock, i have noted over a period of several hours, the memory usage increases to nearly 2%.

Code:
--[[
Air Clock by Alison Pitt (2009)
This clock is designed to look like KDE 4.3's "Air" clock, but from inside Conky.
You can adjust the clock's radius and placement, as well as the size and offset of the drop shadow. You can also choose whether to display the seconds hand. This clock updates every time Conky does, so if you want to show seconds, it is recommended that you set update_interval to no more than 0.5s. If you turn off seconds, you can set the update_interval to as long as 30s.  The settings are in the "Settings" section, starting at Line 21.
Call this script in Conky using the following before TEXT (assuming you save this script to ~/scripts/clock.lua):
	lua_load ~/scripts/clock.lua
	lua_draw_hook_pre draw_clock
]]

require 'cairo'
function conky_draw_clock()

Would appreciate any suggestions, even a "don't worry, that's quite normal" from a Conky expert would set my mind at ease.

Rem out the two lines
Code:
    lua_load = '~/scripts/clock.lua',
    lua_draw_hook_pre = 'draw_clock'
and compare?

I did that, doesn't make any difference, the leakage over a period of time caused by it stops but usage never goes below 0.49%. Did the same with the Daylight-info execi line, same thing.

conky 1.10.0 compiled Wed Jul 1 08:01:11 UTC 2015 for Linux 3.16.0-4-amd64 x86_64

Would my having upgraded to kernel 4.1.12 have something to do with it?

Killed conky and restarted it, note that it starts at 0.49% of memory.

It could be the new kernel. It's hard to say.
I asked a friend of mine who's still into conky if he's aware of any issues with conky 1.10.0 on kernel 3.16.x vs 4.1.x
I should have an answer "tomorrow".
He's in another hemisphere, literally.

Thanks, means a lot, you taking the trouble. Thought i'd try out gkrellm and see how it compared..it's even worse, memory usage is 0.57% with no Built-ins but just the hostname and the gkrellmoon plugin enabled. I am certainly better off with Conky even if it's not optimal yet.

I had never paid much attention to conky's RAM usage, but just had a look:

Code:
Slackware 14.1 (32 bit)
conky-1.9.0-i486-1_SBo
RAM: 2GB
Conky RAM usage: 0.44%, about 8.8MB
My conky rules are pretty light compared to those you posted as well.

I would consider my ~10MB on 32 bit machine comparable to your ~20MB on 64 bit machine, but would not consider either to be unusual by current software standards (or lack thereof).

Is it causing you problems or are you just surprised at the memory footprint?

How do mean, lighter? I was under the impression that i'd the bare minimum that was required for a proper Hardware Monitor..apart from the lua-clock which is the only thing of beauty in it

That's somewhat comforting

Nope, no problems, i am just persnickety about system resource usage on my Debian partition as i have gone to a lot of trouble trying to make it as lean as i could. For luxury i use my LMDE partition.

I would judge lighter just by length of code, but I also see you are drawing yours with cairo moves which I am not.

That's a pretty neat looking conky, and you even have several graphs running! But i need to keep an eye on those individual core temps. and how they fluctuate with usage, even if those readings are the problem. I will certainly try to trim some redundant bits from the configuration settings like shades, graphs, color etc along the lines of yours though and see if that makes a difference. Remember reading somewhere that keeping the alignment "bottom_right" also helps. Will try it out. Thanks for the code.

Btw, it's only the clock which uses cairo and as i said, deleting those lines does not decrease the memory usage, only prevents the slow leakage, ie. now after a little over 5 hrs. of Uptime, it has gone up from 0.49% to 0.69%. I created a kill switch in my openbox root menu just for that.

Edit: Learned something new about the "$image" variable. There's this Debian swirl i'd downloaded, it's a 1028x1270 pixel image. Wanted to display it as an icon in the top left corner of my Conky. First i tried ${image /image_path -s 36x45}. The memory immediately jumped to 0.66%. So i scaled it down with Gimp and used it without the scaling operator, and guess what, the memory usage dropped down to 0.54%. How inefficient is the scaling operation in Conky, eh? Still, even without it, this pre-scaled icon meant an increase of 0.05% (from 0.49% earlier), that's as much memory as my elaborate lua clock uses, with cairo and all!

Well, it's not good news, nor bad news (well it is, for him).
My contact says only he has the 3.16 kernel only using conky 1.9 only.
And he has 2000 conkys to 'update'. Yikes.

wrt 1.10.x and LUA: "some elements that aren't working from what I've read" is all he said.
I wish I had more to tell you, but I don't.

Sorry about that.
It's been my experience that conky does cost resources to monitor resources.
Image the overhead on this
I never thought twice about it on my 2g of RAM system.

Thanks for trying, it only remains for me to take mine apart one object variable at a time and see which ones are the most costly, already found that about <$image>.
As to that Conky image, WOW! Now that's enthusiasm, that's dedication, that's art, what's a few hundred measly MBs for something like that.
