Slide out Notification Center to quickly see key performance data for your Mac, such as CPU, Memory, Disk, Network and Battery. Click the charts to drill down and reveal more details. Click the Network and Disk Icons to view even more data.
Monit Widget is a modest, but ambitious, Notification Center Widget for monitoring your Computer.
Please see https://mmonit.com/widget/ for more details.
● The Widget connects to an external host to get your Public IP-address. This is the only reliable way to obtain your address. No data is sent, only read.
● Temperature, fan-speed, disk i/o and exact process resource usage are available by installing a small helper program from https://mmonit.com/widget/ The Helper uses no CPU when the Monit Widget is not running and less than 3 MB of ram.
● The Top-5 App List shows App CPU usage normalized (0-100%) across all CPU cores.
Not fixed: SMART status and temperature for NVMe disks. Apple does not allow an App Store App to read the SMART status of an NVMe disk
Changed: Time on Battery is changed to show Time on current power source (battery or AC)
Fixed: Battery condition and health colour
Fixed: Display up to 3 fans in the widget.
Fixed: Public IP address is selectable (again)

good info in a great location
This does some useful info in a great location. Having it right there in today is really beneficial to quickly see what is cranking my hardware. The one complaint I have is that temperature is an analog gauge rather than a digital number readout unless I've missed a setting somewhere otherwise it would be 5 stars.

Thank you! To see temperature and fan-speed, please download and install the Monit Helper from https://mmonit.com/widget/
I almost gave this 1 star.
I bought this to check TEMP and FAN speed. I installed the HELPER separately, as this is needed. Then, these things were nowhere to be seen. I found from another review that you have to CLICK on the CPU circle. That's NOT intuitive. So now I know HOW to see the info I was concerned about. I think this info should be available via some little icons or something to at least let you know that it maybe wasn't CATALINA blocking the info or something... I almost gave up and then decided to see what others thought in these comments. That's the ONLY reason I now give it 5 stars.
Monit Helper not working on Catalina
And that's the whole reason I purchased Monit. I hate sneaky software like that - their homepage clearly shows Monit WITH THE HELPER INSTALLED. (I.e., with additional sensors.) Which is the only reason I paid for it. Only to learn that by default, it only has basic sensors like CPU and disk utilization. (Yawn.) To get the snazzy sensors, you have to download and install the Monit Helper. Which alas, while it installs, it doesn't work - reboots be damned. I don't know if portraying Monit with the Helper (that doesn't work) is intentional false advertising. I'd like to give benefit of doubt, but if not, it's a neglegent oversight.

To see the extra details, click on a circle chart. For instance, if you click the CPU circle the widget will expand and show details about your CPU etc. The Helper is not needed for this.
