Menubar CPU, network, battery monitor.

While I do like MenuMeters and iStat Menus for their colorful graphs, I have switched to MiniUsage because it has less overhead than it’s graphical counterparts, without losing any data that I need. Just be sure to use the current version if you’re on Sierra. face->palm

After using it a bit more longer, I noticed that Console is full of "SMC::smcReadKeyAction" errors. When I quit the app, the errors stop coming. This can't be a good thing.

The app crashes when trying to show graph of CPU usage (latest version). Where I can send crash reports? Can't find any contact information on the developer's website.

Excellent little utility, my only request would to be able to set the default display stat to be total memory usage as one of the options. Another minor item would be displaying the private/public IP within the network items. If these are already there and I missed them, that is even better.

I like this little app a lot. Compared to other ways of keeping tabs on processor info, such as Activity Monitor, Peek-a-Boo or one of the menubar multi-meters, it is wonderfully streamlined, with all of the eye-candy stripped out. It also enables you to reveal processes in Finder and quit/force quit them from the menu. And it's free.

v1.4 download won't launch for me. I'm running OS 10.5.8. There doesn't appear to be a contact email address at the developer's website.

Anyone know what the icon that looks like a control knob is in the screen shot of the menu bar? Looks interesting!

MiniUsage use the app "top" (/usr/bin) and this little fellow eats 10% CPU on my MacBook Pro Core2Duo with 10.6.7. A bit to much for my opinion!!! CPU usage drops down to 5% with 2-sec updating the values instead of the default 1 sec. Anybody out there who can confirm this ?

Reports my Mac as having eight cores. If this actually doubled the cores, I'd give it a twenty-star rating.

I like it. I'm a long-time iStat Menus user, but my menu bar is getting so crowded that MiniUsage's compact display method appeals to me right now, even if it's not quite as convenient as iStat Menus.
