System Monitor is an application for the menu bar of your Mac, designed to inform you unobtrusively about the activity of your computer. You can retrieve up-to-date technical data any time, like process load, CPU temperature, main memory consumption, storage space, disk activity, communication on network interfaces, etc. By positioning the app in the menu bar, as least screen real estate as possible will be wasted. The program monitors your system continuously and is readily available when you need it.

You can easily configure the App to automatically stay in the menu bar of your user account. No “login item” is required, so there are no annoying windows or Dock icons when you log in.

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 color or —perfectly integrated into the design of the operating system— in inconspicuous black-and-white. PC switchers who miss this feature on Macintosh computers can easily retrofit this function with System Monitor.


Release Notes:

Corrected a problem with the feature to take over settings from the Trial version where the data transfer could run more than once under specific circumstances.

Gorgeous, clean, simple interface - Everything is right there at a glance. I like the style of everything being monochrome and not attention grabbing. It displays useful info and is as customizable as needed.

A must-have for Mac techs - Even if you aren’t a Mac tech, you should install this app, you’ll learn a lot about what’s going on in the background. Or, to put it another way, this app should be renamed “Everything You Ever Wanted to Know About Your Mac…..But Were Afraid to Ask."

Review by Padupple

Like all of Marcel’s software, this is a must have - Long time user of Dr. Bresink’s apps, which are treasures uknown to many Mac users (TinkerTool—which is free, and TinkerTook System). Dr. Bresink has an astute knowledge of inner workings of Apple OS and it really comes across in all his software. This app covers anything and everything you would want monitor. The display options are thoroughly customizable. You can pick some or all of the functions to be displayed, with great variablity. With all the monitors selected and running, it uses only 35 to 38 MB of memory! Love it!
