Your Mac is more than just a pretty face. There's serious computing horsepower under the hood there. But how do you know what's really going on inside? You ought to check out MenuMeters.

MenuMeters lets you display stats about CPU usage, disk activity, memory consumption, and network activity on your Menu Bar. You get to pick the items you want to track, and even choose how they're displayed. Choices vary by the items you're tracking, but include thermometer, line graph, and pie chart displays, as well as numeric data (upload and download rates), and so forth. In addition, you can click on the items displayed in the Menu Bar to drill down further—examine CPU up-time, for example.

You won't have to wonder any more whether your system is busy "thinking" or has gone south when you see the "100%" displayed on the Menu Bar for CPU usage.

MenuMeters is a Mac application. It runs under OS X (10.2 or later).
