Menumeters no longer works on El Capitan (see here), what are some alternatives? I just want to see my network and CPU stats.

    In case anyone is looking for it and unable to access the linked site, here's the zip file that was available for download before it went down. I'll be happy to remove this when you get back online. dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/8413228/MenuMeters_1.9.zip It's also possible to install by downloading the xcode project from GitHub

    To @yuji - I am receiving errors when I install MenuMeters_1.9 prefpane. I just get "Could not load MenuMeters preference pane." Thoughts?

iStat Menus has a beta going for El Capitan right now - it's a paid app, but will definitely do what you want. See link here.


There are also some cheaper alternatives:

hope it helps! :-)


If you want some free apps, you might want to check this out: iStat Pro Widget 4.92.

It's the same as iStat Menus suggested by @Mikey T.K., but:

  • pros: free
  • cons: discontinued

And it's not a proper app: as its name suggests it's a widget, so you'll find it in the Dashboard.
