MenuMeters overview

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 command-drag and remember their positions in the menubar across logins and restarts.

MenuMeters is open source freeware released under the GNU General Public License version 2.

What’s new in version 2.1.6.1

Version 2.1.6.1:
  • Fixes a bug in the menu of the memory meter which I introduced while refactoring. I am sorry for the mess.

Been using menumeters since PPC days and several generations later it's still going strong and it is definitely one of the first apps installed after buying a new mac. Thank you for taking the reigns and updating this.

I replaced my paid iStat Menus with MenuMeters since MM needs less CPU resources :)

Fantastic little free app. I've used it since forever! Shows you at a glance key operating information in an unobtrusive way. Many thanks to the programmer who picked up the threads when it looked like it wasn't going to make the OS cut, and continues to develop it.

Brilliant app. I wish I had found this long back. I started looking now as I had an anti-virus eating too much network bandwidth with huge weekly updates.
