System Monitor is an application for the menu bar of OS X, designed to inform you unobtrusively about the activity of your computer. You can retrieve up-to-date technical data any time, like process load, main memory consumption, storage space, disk activity, communication on network interfaces, etc. By positioning the app in the menu bar, minimum screen real estate is wasted. The program monitors your system continuously and is readily available when you need it.
If desired, System Monitor can also simulate the flickering activity lights of hard drives or network sockets in the menu bar. This is possible either in
- Fixed a possible layout problem in the network menu if the feature to monitor the WAN IP addresses was active, but the chosen service provider did not respond intermittently.
- The App is now protected against a possible problem where the operating system could unexpectantly quit the menu bar display component if process monitoring was active, but high file system activity
- OS X 10.6.8 or later
