I installed gnome-shell-extension-systemMonitor-3.2.0-1 and switched on the System Monitor extension through gnome-tweak-tool.

I was expecting to get the System Monitor on the Gnome Top Bar but only got some (fairly uggly) monitoring on the bottom left corner of the desktop.

I successfully installed this on Arch. You are right it is not packaged for Fedora. The alternative install seems to be written for Ubuntu. You're not missing that much. It looks a lot better on your link, than it does on my Arch Gnome panel. Really takes up a lot of space on the panel too.

Follow the alternative install given in the link

and install the latest version of libgtop from koji.

Till the official Fedora package gets released try and use this above workaround.
