Determine PC health at a glance with this simple program. Systemometer Personal Edition's target-like display enables users to see an easily understood graph of the results of select counters. Users merely choose a few counters and a polygon-shaped display quickly informs viewers of the state of the monitored system.
Creating a graph is a mere matter of setting up a new profile from the File pull-down menu. You choose which of a dozen system counters you want to monitor. Quick check boxes let you easily select current, average, maximum, or all three values for each counter. Each gets a different color line to make values easier to follow. Those who dislike visual graphs can set the program to display a change log of values. Update time for either style is easily set by the user. The program makes it very simple to set counter high and low display values, add or delete graph lines, and adjust other display values.
Though users have the option to delete or add counters after setting up a new profile, our testers found some difficulties doing this with the freeware. Most counters are only available to registered users, and the program more often than not gave our testers this warning when attempting to add counters to existing profiles. Still, system administrators will definitely appreciate the ease of looking at this program's well-organized bank of displays to gauge system health.
Systemometer is a freeware monitoring tool that shows system performance and resources in a spider chart. Different shapes of monitoring polygon draw visual patterns associated with normal or critical system states. This snapshot view helps to read the overall system status at a glance. Systemometer records the history of counter values to the log file in either HTML or CSV format. It can be also configured to run as a screen saver.
