SwapMenu is a one-trick pony. You may never need a pony that can crawl under a limbo stick (or display the amount of swap space used for virtual memory), but for those who do, this little app is just the ticket. SwapMenu is unobtrusive, informative, and low on resource consumption. I can run pretty low on disk space, and I have a habit of leaving lots of apps open, then opening a dozen or so large images in Photoshop. This is where SwapMenu shows me that, yes, 3.0G of my disk is dedicated to virtual memory. Even if SwapMenu isn't useful, per se, it's not really meant to be. It is meant to be informative, and it does this well. An alternate icon option rather than text (say, a depiction of percentage of free disk space used for vm) would be nice, as well as a few more customizable options, but on the whole, a nice little informer.

Actually, that's not true - MenuMeters can show paging activity (amongst its many other talents), but doen't do what this app does, which is to show you how many Mb of your hard drive are taken up with virtual memory swap files. This can be useful in revealing that, for example, certain apps generate huge swap files over time because their memory management is flawed. So this app has a single use, and does it without fuss. Handy.

I agree with Anonymous - besides, MenuMeter (freeware) displays this and much more besides!
