MenuMeters is a set of CPU, memory, disk, and network monitoring tools for Mac OS X. Although there are numerous other programs which do the same thing, none had quite the feature set I was looking for. Most were windows that sat in a corner or on the desktop, which are inevitably obscured by document windows on a PowerBook's small screen. Those monitors which used the menubar mostly used the NSStatusItem API, which has the annoying tendency to totally reorder my menubar on every login.

The MenuMeters monitors are true SystemUIServer plugins (also known as Menu Extras). This means they can be reordered using more...

For a straight-forward app that can show you basic but key status info on what your Mac is up to, there is none better. Plus, the click-through features to access core system utilities is an added bonus. It's visible but discrete. Highly recommended for any Mac, and thanks to the developer for making it freely available!

On installing a new/clean OS this marvelous tool is the second 3rd party item to be installed, after Keyboard Maestro. MenuMeters is the wonder app that keeps you tightly in the loop, in so mant ways. Click on the graph in the menu bar and you have access to Network items. Click on the numerical percentage CPU activity and you have a direct link to open Activity Monitor. And I have only ever used half of it's tools! Thank you thank you dear Alex Harper for your astute design skills.

Thank you for providing a version for the 10.9 devs. I don't know how wise it is to use a PrefPane with... um... special APIs, but even though I should be maintaining a pristine OS environment, I won't run without MenuMeters.

As a side note, I notice that under the "Similar Software" portion of this page, iStat Menu has a dozen or so votes, whereas on the iStat Menu page, MenuMeters has 117 votes.

I'd say that's about right.

Thank you for keeping it free.
