Overview

MenuMeters

My fork of MenuMeters for El Capitan, Sierra, High Sierra, Mojave, Catalina and Big Sur.

Usage:

If you just want to use it, please go to http://member.ipmu.jp/yuji.tachikawa/MenuMetersElCapitan/ or https://github.com/yujitach/MenuMeters/releases and download the binary. The detailed installation instruction is given in the former.

Other versions & related open source softwares:

If you run Mojave and higher, https://github.com/exelban/stats is another menubar monitor which has a more modern look and feel, often offers more capability, and is maintained actively. It is heavily recommended.

There are also further forks of my version of MenuMeters, which implement more features. You might want to try them out:

If you'd like your version mentioned here, please tell me at the issues page.

Background:

It's a great utility originally developed at http://www.ragingmenace.com/software/menumeters/ . The original version does not work on El Capitan and later, due to the fact that SystemUIServer doesn't load Menu Extras not signed by Apple any longer.

I'm making here a minimal modification so that it runs as a faceless app, putting NSStatusItem's instead of NSMenuExtra's. Since then, many people contributed pull requests, most of which have been incorporated.

More recently, starting from Catalina, MenuMeters was changed from a preference pane within System Preferences to an independent app. This is due to an increasing amount of security features imposed by Apple on preference panes running within System Preferences, which made it too cumbersome to develop MenuMeters as a preference pane.

To hack:

Clone the git repo, open MenuMeters.xcodeproj, and build the target MenuMeters. This will create an independent app which runs outside of System Preferences.

  • Display of throughput only seems to work correctly when left clicked.

    Display of throughput only seems to work correctly when left clicked.

    I have 2 network interfaces active, thunderbolt and wifi. When I left click and open the network panel, the values reflect the primary interface. When I close the popup, the network displays 0/0 with occasional flashes of a number. This is under MacOS 11 (just installed). I believe this is a MacOS 11 issue.

  • Added support for:

    Added support for:

    1. Horizontal thermometer bars for CPU usage
    2. Sort CPU usage
    3. Average lowest utilized half of CPUs into one bar

    (1) allows for much more fidelity in CPU usage display - the wide horizontal bars are much longer than the vertical bars and thus can show finer detail

    (2) allows the CPU usage to be more easily tracked by eye

    (3) allows a view of "hyperthreaded" CPUs that doesn't feature the "virtual" cores as highly as the "real" cores, on the assumption that the operating system will always schedule processes on 'physical' cores before 'virtual' cores, thus the lower half of the CPUs are not 'real' and can be averaged into one CPU bar to reduce clutter and yet still give some insight into their usage.

  • Files copy slows down when

    Files copy slows down when "Disc Activity Menu Meter" enabled

    Hi there!

    I definitely noticed files copy slowdown when "Display Disc Activity Menu Meter" is "on". Was under copy of 8GB file from my internal SSD to external USB Flash Drive. When I disabled "Disc Activity", copy speed returned back to normal (was near 100 times slower). When enabled -- slowed down again. My settings attached (update interval: 2 sec.). Maybe happens only with USB Flash Drives.

  • CPU Percentage color is black even with a dark desktop color

    CPU Percentage color is black even with a dark desktop color

    Hi. First off, great job porting the project and keeping it alive.

    Being that I do a lot of color correction on images, I keep my desktop a dark, neutral gray color. All the icons in my menubar are white, except for the MM combined CPU percentage indicator, which is black. Black on dark gray is not very readable. In the MM control panel, the color of this item is not user-selectable, which would solve the problem. On the CPU pane, only colors for graph and thermometer are user-selectable, not the percentage.

    (Feature request) No option for quitting the app in general and when using right-click on the icon in menu bar

    I think it would be convenient if the app had both a quick (in the menu bar upon using right-click) and a general "Quit" option because I can't seem to find any of these. So that leaves us with no other choice than to use Cmd + Q to close the application completely. Overall, the app works like a charm - thank you!

    Similar to memory display, it would be nice if we could see used and available storage for a certain storage device in the menu bar. We also should be able to configure which storage device to be displayed in the menu bar.

    Clean install Big Sur 11.2.3

    I made a clean install with Big Sur 11.2.3 and installed the las version of Menumeters (2.1.4) but when I launch the app, nothing appears on the menu bar. The app just work to check if there's new updates.

    Almost get done but it came to me to copy the old one from the backup the 2.0.6 version and it works just fine. Updated from there to las version and the issue comes again, so I kept 2.0.6.

    When only displaying cpu temp, unnecessary space/gap in menu bar

    In the CPU section, when only displaying CPU temp (not percentage, graphs or bars) there is a large blank space next to the temperature display in the menu bar. This looks like a big gap to the next menu bar icon. There is no gap when percentage, graphs or bars are displayed. Thanks! Screen Shot 2021-03-06 at 6 24 58 PM

    • Now you can select colors with transparencies. (It's really one line of code, to override the default setting that the color panel doesn't show the opacity slider. I don't know why it's the default in 2020.)

    • The auto-updater now sends basic system info, such as macOS version and cpu type. For more details, see https://sparkle-project.org/documentation/system-profiling/ . This is to objectively decide how much effort I should put into maintaining compatibility with older macOS versions and/or adopting new CPU architectures.

    2. Activity Monitor can now be opened from any MenuMeter.
    3. Many other bug fixes.
    4. Probably with new bugs, due to my ongoing rewrite of the internals toward Big Sur.

    (The original 2.0.8 contained a bug which made it unusable when the menubar was set to auto-hide. The version 2.0.8.2 I released to address the issue in fact made it unusable in other cases too, which was public only for about two hours but ~600 people downloaded. This version 2.0.8.3 should behave better.)

    Unfortunately the bug killed the auto-updater itself, so those affected need to install the binary by manually downloading it.

    The release 2.0.6 I uploaded about a day ago didn't actually fix #159, due to my stupid last minute change. It actually made things worse. This 2.0.6.1 should really fix the issue.

    (Just to remember, the mistake I made was that when I tried to commit the bug fix, I realize that the some of the lines had only indent changes. To revert these lines, I copied the changes elsewhere, reverted the change, and applied the changes again, but to a different location with almost the same code. Ugh.)

    This version is more energy-efficient thanks to @jthlim 's contributions. It should also fix the problems MenuMeters had with network drives.
