Beautiful, Informative, Concise

My sense is that it’s a beautiful utility capable of providing a wealth of information. I’ve been using this for as long as it has been around, on several iterations of iMac, compared it against other similar utilities for system status, but keep coming back to it. It’s very customizable, but I’ve got a favorite I’ve modified that gives me time, date, memory usage, and CPU activity, and has bubble messages it I want to drill down into the details. Even then, it is capable of so much more...

what does it do

it put a little icon in my menu bar, but you can’t get it to show anything but a white bar, you can click on it all you want but it does nothing.

Beautiful system monitor

iPulse is a beautiful system monotring app. It presents a wealth of information at a glance, and details can be viewed just by hovering the cursor over the app. iPulse is highly customizable and a very solid application from Iconfactory.
