Pulse is a life monitor for your Mac, displaying all of its vital system information in a colourful, compact (and resizable), multipurpose, and fully customizable gauge. iPulse displays CPU activity, system load, network activity, memory usage, disk usage, and the current time and date. You could get much of this information by typing the top command in Terminal, but that’s like getting a computer printout to read the speedometer and fuel gauge in your car. iPulse displays all of your vital information at a glance. There are other system monitors, but excellent design gives iPulse the edge.
