A new collection of system monitoring Dashboard widgets have been made available from iSlayer.

The company has released seven widgets and a new application iStat.

iStat is a customisable system monitoring application that features anti-aliased graphs. It watches all system activity, including uptime, network and disk activity.

The seven widgets include monitoring dashboards for CPU usage, memory usage, disk use, network activity, battery use, wireless signal strength and - perhaps an essential widget for MacBook users facing intermittent shut downs - temperature and fan speeds.

Each widget features a side tray with more details that animate open when the dial's centre is clicked.

The company is also working to develop system monitoring utilities that are visible in the Mac OS X menu bar.

iStat and the widgets are available now for free download.
