Description:

Slide out Notification Center to quickly see key performance data for your Mac, such as CPU, Memory, Disk, Network and Battery. Click the charts to drill down and reveal more details. Click the Network and Disk Icons to view even more data.

Monit Widget is a modest, but ambitious, Notification Center Widget for monitoring your Computer.

Limitations due to AppStore sandboxing and other known issues:

○ An AppStore App is not allowed to read system sensors (SMC), so we cannot show detailed CPU temperatures and other sensor data such as fan-speed.

○ An AppStore App is not allowed to read all processes on the system. This means that the Top-3 App List will not necessarily contain the processes that are currently using the most resources. The List will however show the applications that are using the most resources.

○ MONIT will underreport Memory usage for Applications in the Top-3 List that spins of sub-processes which we are not allowed to read. In practice, MONIT is quite accurate given the sandbox restrictions it operates under, but for certain applications it will underreport. If you compare with Activity Monitor, you should compare with "Real Memory" and aggregate memory usage of sub-processes.

○ The Thermal Gauge uses an Apple API that does not seem to work properly on older Macs. On MacBooks from 2015 and later it appears to work fine.

Notes:

● The Widget connects to an external host to get your Public IP-address. This is the only reliable way to obtain your address. No data is sent, only read.

● The Top-3 App List shows App CPU usage normalized (0-100%) across all CPU cores.

Nice - I love the new white theme. I can understand wanting a dark theme but I feel like the white theme is important to also be included in order to match. ;)

Doesn’t work - Wish I could review the functionality, but it doesn’t work for me on my 13” MBP running 10.11. Only the Monit title bar ever shows in the notification center, and trying to manually results in a “Monit quit unexpectedly” dialog every single time. I’ve yet to be able to see this app in action.

Great notification center monitor - Love the new light them. Great, quick visibility into CPU, Memory, Disk, and Network utilization. Would love it if history with graphing were added on top of the current usage snapshots. Fantastic product at an excellent value

How do you display temperature?!?! - I selected Fahrenheit but I can’t see where it’s supposed to show it? It doesn’t work! I only still see a red to blue thermal indicator. I’m going to ask for a refund.

Awesome! - Love the design and functionality! Would like to have an option to pick the top color of all 4 circles (currently it’s only green). Everything else looks great, great job!

Review by Christopher Doryan

Useless Purchase - Monit not working on my mac running Sierra 10.12.6 - Does not open on the “Notification Center”. It says, “Click Edit at the bottom. In the list on the right, find Monit and click the green + icon.” However, nothing appears, not even the Edit at the bottom. Just purchased this app, or should say, just threw my mac app bucks to the trash. UPDATE: Nevermind, I found the edit button, after watching the install video.
