A bare-bones CPU monitor menu extra that displays a beating heart
Version: 1.3What is Heart Monitor?
Operating System: Mac OS X
Heart Monitor is a bare-bones CPU monitor menu extra that displays a beating heart. As the CPU load increases, the heart beats faster.
You can set Heart Monitor to track the User, System, Idle or Nice load. Heart Monitor does not do much else. Uptime, processor info and other tidbits are not displayed.
Also, you can set the window level (desktop, normal or floating), and eventually, if you find it useful, display a small window showing all CPU load averages.
There are many CPU monitors out there that give you plenty of CPU information. This is not one of those applications.
How do I use Heart Monitor?
Simply double click to launch. A heart will appear on your desktop, and a new menu item will appear in your menubar, displaying a percentage. This is the CPU load average for whichever load you wish to track (User, System, Idle or Nice). Use this menu to set the preferences of the Heart Monitor.
How do I quit Heart Monitor?
Simply click on the menu that is displaying the CPU load, and choose "Quit Heart Monitor".
