This is a great app and I love how much you can customize it. This is one of the best free apps I have yet to use. My only suggestion so far would be to allow the program to run without a dock icon. If there is a way to do this that I don't know of I would appreciate the info. Thanks.

Crashes a few seconds after launch on MacBook Air 2012. Looks like this needs an update for the new machines.

Update: I managed to get it to stay open on my 4th try. Not sure if it's because I opened the prefs immediately after launch, or it just sorted itself out. It's missing GPU usage on this machine, though.

From the developer's site: The last version of atMonitor to support GPU related features is atMonitor 2.7.1.

Now I installed the PPC version and it updated to 2.7b and all is fine. This is a 5 star app. Really a good one!

This is SO CLOSE to what I've been looking for it hurts. For what it does, it's great: it monitors your system in various ways, and if you need that kind of info, this is much less cumbersome than Apple's included Activity Monitor.

For me, I'd like 2 things: first, the ability to pin it directly to the desktop, not hovering over other windows. Geektool (although not quite the same) offers something like this. I just want to be able to glance over to see what's going on, and if I can't see it, show the desktop to see what's going on. Second, I'd like the option for the ethernet monitors to display throughput speeds.

Great program!

Put the display in the menu bar like I do -- then it will always be visible. You won't even need to Exposé-show the desktop. And the ethernet display shows the throughput speed for me (current I/O speed, maximum ever detected, & cumulative upload/download size). Or are you asking about the connection speed (e.g. 100 Mbps, 1 Gbps, etc.)?

To put the floating window on your desktop right click on it. "pin it down" and uncheck "always on the top". Email support@atpurpose.com if you have more questions.

Sorry guys, we messed up with 2.3 - we pushed a fix without enough testing and we have introduced a regression. We just pushed 2.5 and it should work just fine.

I like atMonitor, but after the latest (10.8.5) Mac OS X update, it seems to crash on launch every time. (Perhaps it was unrelated to the upgrade, I'm not 100% sure.) I tried cleaning the cache files and deleting preferences, but still have the problem. Anyone have a solution?

GPU temp remains at 0 always. I do get a reading for GPU usage, however. Interestingly, when I first launch atMonitor I do see a GPU temp reading but it goes back down to 0 immediately and stays there.

iStat does display GPU temp correctly, so I'm wondering if this is a bug in atMonitor.

Anyone else see this behavior?

Unfortunately this still doesn't work on my iMac running 10.6.8. This is the latest iMac with Thunderbolt. It launches, but then nothing happens and nothing can be selected from the "Launch" submenu. Anyone else with this issue?

2.1.2 only says "atMonitor could not obtain required resources ... Please copy it to Apps folder and relaunch", but after doing so, the message reappears. Same with 2.1.4; I'm using OSX.5.8 on PPC G4 1250MHz.

I hope to see an update soon. It crashes randomly and the console logs tell me nothing (that I can see). I've used this before, replacing iStat & MenuMeters. Now I've went back to MenuMeters because atMonitor wouldn't stay open for longer than an Hour & that iStat is now a paid App. Wishing I hadn't bought the iPhone App now. What a waste of, what was it, 4 bucks?

Bug: When trying to adjust the NET font size, CPU & RAM are adjusted, not NET. This applies to other things too but I haven't messed with this much.

Nice alternative to MenuMeters!

hi,

Thank you for kind words and the report, but it's not a bug. It was intentional behavior. There isn't much space in the menu bar to show 2 lines at anything but smallest sizes. I don't remember off top of my head the exact cut off size, but you can set Net font size to 7,8 or 9. Anything above 9 gets forced to 9.

cheers
