- Set color for each light or use monochrome to match the built in icons.
- Set size to normal or small.
- Set the threshold of CPU usage to report.
- Light weight application.

Ratings and Reviews

love the lights….


call me old school, but I do love to get the feedback from the system telling me when it is busy doing stuff instead of just spinning its wheel doing nothing. Like when it is hung-up.

the new stats pull down is great. It is like using a simplified version of Activity Monitor. Great job.

Was Looking for an App that would show actual Usage this isn't it...

Need to protect

First off, the graphic shown in the upper left corner isn't the app (the one that looks like a gas gauge). It's the four little dots shown to the left of the blue tooth icon at the top of the screenshot. This app indicates usage but doesn't show what level of usage. i.e. 60 percent cpu utilization or 3GB of ram usage or 700MB of network bandwidth usage. Instead is shows that there is activity taking place and that's it. Put another way, if something is happening that meets the threshold the light will come on, otherwise the light stays off. You can adjust the threshold of when the light comes on and what color lights up but that's about it. If you need something more than blinky lights I recommend you keep looking.

Yes great little app - does exactly as you would expect


I agree with one of the other reviewers. This is a great little app - just what you would want and expect. It isn't some big and bloated app that you end up asking later why you downloaded it in the first place. It is just a little app to show you your disk and netowrk activity, plus cpu and memory. Simple and sweet - nothing more, nothing less - exactly what you would expect and want.
