This has to be the best way to track your stats on your Mac in one simple menu. Since I run a PPC 2.7Ghz Liquid Cooled G5 it is even more important to me.

Apple only made two LC Macs. There is always a chance that the LC could leak. more...

First of all, MU, there's an update out today, 4.22.

I'm giving this a high rating because it is an excellent app. I like to know what is going on in my computer. If the fans start whirring loudly when I don't expect them to, I want to know if the CPU is hot or if something else is causing the problem. There are, as many of you know, many possible reasons. Maybe an app or system process is causing the CPU to heat up when it shouldn't, or maybe you just need to reset the SMC. iStat Menus can help you get to the bottom of the problem pretty quickly. Basically, if you want to know what's going on in your computer, iStat menus is the easiest and most attractive option.

I have taken off half a star, however, for two minor complaints. The first is that I much prefered the widget version. Okay, this gives you more options, but my menubar is so crammed these days, I'd rather have the option to tuck some of these away. Maybe Bjango will take advantage of the new notification centre in OS 10.10? Wink! Wink!

The other minor complaint is that the menubar fonts are blurry. No matter what I do, I can't get them to look as clear and crisp as I'd like. I've seen this app running on 10.10 and can say that iStat Menus will need an update to fix the appearance for the new OS, especially for the rather laughable (at this moment) "dark mode" (if Apple doesn't decide to completely scrap it).

Still, as I say, these are actually very minor - so minor I've only taken off half a star.

I would prefer that Bjango spend their development time on more forward-looking issues like representing RAM usage in a way that's consistent with Mavericks (Memory Pressure, Compressed RAM, etc.).

My menu bar is crowded but I've configured iStat to be more compact. I vastly prefer the menu bar to the widget because the widget is hidden and can only be seen by leaving my workspace. With the menu bar version, a status check is as simple as a split-second glance without moving my hands or leaving my work.

But it also must be considered that Dashboard widgets are becoming more deprecated in Yosemite and everyone expects them to disappear shortly after that. Hardly anyone develops new widgets as it is.

Small beef here, but the Disks Module for telling you how empty or full your disks are still doesn't update. Um, you shouldn't have to restart your computer to see disk usage change reflected!

Even if you force-quit application, agent and daemon (and restart)... it doesn't update.

So this aspect of iStat Menus is actually slacker than good ol' Activity Monitor. Try it yourself. It is an odd and annoying oversight - the static pie chart symbol denying you the full satisfaction of having done a good job in somehow clearing some space on your jam-packed drive.

V. 4.21 still has a major problem: The Network menu item still shows both upload and download speeds as zero on OS 10.7.5. The Network bar graph works as expected, but the network speed menu item option is stuck at 0 KB/s. V. 4.20 was the same, so I'd really hoped it would be fixed with this update because the DL/UL speed menu item is really important to me. Oh well.

Anyone else having this problem?

Don't have 10.7.5 here, so can't check on that, but double check the settings for Network, specifically which Primary Interface is selected in iStat Menus. If it's not set to the interface your internet is on, you would not see the bandwidth / speed.

That did the trick, Endymion0000 — thanks! Somehow it got switched from WiFi to Automatic, which still should have reported my WiFi speeds, since that’s my only network connection.

I appreciate the help.

I love this app and have used it for several years with no problems. However, yesterday I installed it on a Late-2006 2.16 GHz Intel iMac running OS 10.7.5, and now the menubar's numerical download/upload speed indicator (as opposed to the DL/UL graph shown in iStat's 'Network' menubar icon are ALWAYS listed at 0.0 -- even while something is downloading at high speed at that very moment.

Is anyone else having this problem?
