What is CPU History?
CPU History is an application that graphs your current CPU usage history in the Dock icon, and optionally, in a floating window. You can customize colors, update frequency, and bar thickness.
It uses very little CPU to monitor your CPU usage. I think this is a good thing.
CPU History 1.1:
Released June 22rd, 2008
Changes from 1.0:
- Now supports multicore machines.
(credit to @dsandler for a starting patch)
- The graph no longer erases data when altering preferences.
- Can change divider size between core graphs: can be 0–16 pixels.
- Changed default graph colors to be identical to Activity Monitor: solid red, green, blue, and black
- Floater window now remembers where you placed it between launches. (credit @boredzo for the suggestion)
- Overhauled the preferences window layout. (and wrote a short blog post about it)
- About and Preferences windows do not close with ⌘–w
- On 8 or 16 core machines, the graphs are too tiny to be useful
