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).
What's New

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.

A must-have app!
A little polish on the appearance will make this app even better.

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.

So funny. Don't need a screenshot of the single panel as much as a screenshot of what they look like running. :)

Another of my must have apps. I can't tell you how many problems I've tracked down by keeping an eye on CPU and memory use with MM.

Thanks for keeping it updated and free!!

6 stars all the way!!

I've been running MM for 9 years, and it's one of my "must-haves."

Thanks a million, Alex!!!

Doesn't work yet with OSX 10.9 Mavericks - not a complaint, just a note. It is an excellent app and developer usually updates it relatively fast to work with incoming OS.

Hobyx had trouble on 03 Dec 2010
I'm not sure what change to my system has effected this but I'm no longer able to see Network activity in MenuMeters. The other meters are working but not this anymore. I'm using a MBP i7 with 10.6.4.

I have been running MenuMeters for a long time now and recently started using FileVault on my MacBook. Now I have noticed that for some reason the meters don't always return after a restart. Then I am left going into the System Preferences to turn them on again.

Anbody else seen this? Great software just the same and I love using it.

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.
