Alternatives to MenuMeters?
Posted by: JEBB
Date: March 09, 2016 10:21AM
I always liked MenuMeters on my MBP because it told me how much memory and CPU was being used right there from the menu bar. It doesn't work with El Capitan. Anyone have experience with replacements and recommendations?

Activity Monitor (Applications/Utilities) has two options: Dock icon will show several activities, and "Window" contextual menu gives you several others. I use the later to show CPU floating window because it shows all 8 cores of my i7 CPU.

I think I will just put an OUT OF ORDER
sticker on my head and call it a day.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

Someone has tweaked MM to work in El Cap.

If you're feeling adventurous:

You can use a third-party utility and worry about it breaking, or worse, breaking something else or you can do what modelamac suggested.

Me too. The "Floating CPU Window" is neat, and you can put it wherever you want.

I also use iStat Menus. I'm using an old version, and it still works in Mavericks.
