Editors' Review

+
MenuMeters is a free, open-source, small-footprint set of menubar tools for monitoring CPU, disk, memory, and network usage. You set up MenuMeters in a system preference pane, adding any or all of the four meters that you want to appear in your menubar. The CPU meter displays load information along with options for graphs; the disk meter show activity on local disks, with space usage on a drop-down menu; the memory meter shows RAM usage with an optional paging activity indicator; and the network meter provides multiple options for displaying and scaling activity. MenuMeters has a long, stable history and a happy user base across multiple Mac OS releases, but it does use an undocumented Apple API--so interaction with other apps may cause unexpected behavior under unusual circumstances. Fortunately, as a preference pane, MenuMeters is also very easy to uninstall.

"Shows usage without excessive footprint"

April 28, 2013  |  By khflottorp

 |  Version: MenuMeters 1.6

Pros

Shows summary - also network usage. Does what it claims to do.

Cons

... Please: It is small and simple and can be made a monster and gorgeous with fancy graphs, numerous features, bangs and whistles with tons of CPU consumption - but his is simple, light.

Summary

Should be standard with all MacOS laptops - shows what's going on. Keep it this way.

"Indispensable"

February 17, 2013  |  By Steve Davidson

 |  Version: MenuMeters 1.6

Pros

At a glance, shows me exactly what the computer is doing (memory, drives, network, and CPU -- in whatever order you specify).
Mouse-down on a one of its menus, and you get more detailed info, and controls
Additional configuration options available from System Preferences

Cons

There are no Cons.

Summary

This is the first thing that I install on a new computer. The author ably fills a hole left by Apple. The only wish-list item I would have for it is a "Check for Updates" option. However because this is such stable software, there have been very few updates needed.
