System monitor

Hi folks,

Win7 64bit

CPU Meter is running displaying total CPU and RAM consumption. However this is a dual core box. I expect showing the consumption of each core. Any free System monitor can be download and is free to use? I need to monitor network performance as well. TIA

Hi OS,

Thanks for your links.

I have the CPU Gadget download and installed. Wonderful it displays the % consumption of 2 cores separately. It can be resized for easy monitoring.

I also have the network monitor download and installed. It is also working nicely. I have a minor problem in respect of resizing it. I clicked Option but can't find the resizing tool/item there.

Any advice? TIA

B.R.

There does seem to be NO resize for that gadget. I would advise searching in Desktop and Sideshow gadgets - Microsoft Windows to see if there is another that will suit your needs

Hi OS,

Win7 has built-in monitor to do the job;

Start -> search "Task Manager" -> "View running process with Task Manager" -> Performance

"CPU Usage History" and "Physical Memory Usage History" displayed

-> Resouce Monitor ...

On the right-hand colume it displays;
CPU - Total 100%
Service CPU Usage 100%
CPU 0 100%
CPU 1 100%
etc.

-> Network

On the right-hand colume it displays;
Network 10 Kbps
TCP Connections
Local Area Connection.
