The most powerful system monitoring app for macOS, right in your menubar.
iStat Menus covers a huge range of stats, including a CPU monitor, GPU, memory, network usage, disk usage, disk activity, date & time, battery and more. All in a highly optimised, low resource package. iStat Menus is highly configurable, with full support for macOS’ light and dark menubar modes.
iStat Menus features a wide range of different menubar text and graph styles that are all completely customizable. Each of the dropdown menus provides access to even greater detail including history graphs for access to up to 30 days of data.
• CPU & GPU •
Realtime CPU graphs and a list of the top 5 CPU resource hogs. Tracked use by individual cores or with all cores combined, to save space. Plus, GPU memory and processor usage on supported Macs, and the active GPU can be shown in the menubar.
• Memory •
Memory stats for your menubar as a pie chart, graph, percentage, bar or any combination of those things. Opening the menu shows a list of the apps using the most memory.
• Network •
Monitor bandwidth usage in the menubar as text or graphs. Advanced bandwidth and interface information is available in the dropdown menu.
• Disk usage & activity •
See used and free space for multiple disks in your menubar. Plus, S.M.A.R.T. status monitoring, detailed disk I/O, and a variety of different read and write indicators.
• Sensors •
A realtime view of temperatures, hard drive temperatures (where supported), fans, voltages, current and power. Please note that sensor monitoring requires installing a free add-on from our website.
• Date & time •
A highly configurable date, time and calendar for your menubar, including fuzzy clock, moon phase, and upcoming calendar events. Plus, a world clock with sunrise, sunset, moonrise and moonset times.
• Battery & power •
Detailed info on your battery’s current state, and a highly configurable menu item that can change if you’re draining, charging, or completely charged. Magic Mouse, Magic Trackpad and Apple wireless keyboard battery levels.
• Notifications •
iStat Menus can notify you of an incredibly wide range of events, based on CPU, GPU, memory, disks, network, sensors, battery, power and more. This lets you be notified when your public IP has changed, if your internet connection is down, if CPU usage is above 60% for more than 10 seconds, or a near-infinite range of other options. It can even remind you of daylight saving changes.
Ratings and Reviews
BEWARE! Great product, but you are not getting the same application as you do from the website.
This is the ideal way to monitor your Mac, and it is a must-have if you live for data. However, be aware before you purchase this that you are NOT getting everything you would get if you purchase from the website! I give it 4 stars because it is still a great program, plus support is very responsive and will help you switch your license to the website version if you contact them. Know what you are buying.
Great but some things are broken
Overall I really like this widget and find it super helpful, so I'm excited to update my review once these things are fixed. I'm running it on a base model M1 Pro Macbook Pro with 8 CPU cores and 14 GPU cores. The first error I encountered is in the Sensor dropdown menu, it displays that I have 10
CPU cores instead of 8. The next thing may be by design, but in the sensor dropdown it shows GPU 1 and GPU 2 and that is it. If those are supposed to be the cores, it's missing 12 cores. The last issue I've encountered is in the CPU GPU dropdown menu, it shows me the CPU data but not the GPU. I have GPU and GPU processes selected, but no data shows up in the dropdown menu. These are minor gripes, but if they were fixed they would make iStat Menus nearly perfect. Looking forward to updating my review
Of all the apps, utilities, and programs I have ever used, this one takes the cake for highest level of perfection. Somebody has totally obsessed over this, getting everything right, down to the smallest detail, as if the fate of the universe depended upon it. If you are at all tech-oriented, you are going to be impressed with the level of detail and sheer amount information they have managed to pack into a few icons on your menu bar. It's of course far more information than you are likely to need, perfectionism is not a game for the practical.
