Monitor Vital System Stats with iStat Menu
Every once in a while you stumble upon a Mac utility, app, or feature that you immediately fall in love with and wonder how you ever live without… well today and for me, that is iStat Menu.
iStats Menu has been around a while, but apparently I’ve neglected it to my own detriment because this thing is awesome.
Installing is a breeze and it becomes a System Preference pane, where you can adjust settings to monitor everything from the temperatures in your Mac, to CPU activity, disk space, bandwidth usage, and oh so much more.
If you ask me, this is an absolute must download for Mac geeks, so check it out!
iStats is highly configurable, so if monitoring system resources appeals to you then check it out.
Update: iStats was free for a while and a trial can still be downloaded for free, along with a full featured paid version. However, you can still download the free version of iStats Menu and get those features on older versions of Mac OS X.
