System Indicator is a simple, clean, lightweight application sitting in the Mac OS X menubar. Its unobtrusive icons will inform you how much disk space, processor, and RAM is being used currently by your computer, while perfectly matching the black Mac OS X menu bar icon style. The app is very light on resources itself, and will waste no screen space -- each of the indicators (CPU, RAM, disk space) can be off, an icon that changes color according to load, or an icon and a percentage indicator. Additionally, the CPU indicator can be configured to either show an average percentage for all cores, or a detailed view showing the precise usage of each of your computer's cores. In other words, you will be able to configure the app to show as few or as many details as you want. The menu bar icons can also change color when they reach a threshold you set; to yellow if medium load is detected, and to red if high load is detected. You will therefore be able to gauge the load of your system at a glance, even if you disable showing percentages.

Version 1.4.1
Review by Jon Austin

Simple, elgant app that does what's advertised - This app works as promised and is a good, inexpensive addition to your status bar. I do have one suggestion for future versions: allow more customization of icon colors. I would, for example, like to set the lowest level of performance to green rather than the default black. Even better would be gradients with stop points. Thanks.
