Compact Tray Meter - CPU & RAM monitoring utility.

Version: 1.1

Size: 787K

Compatibility: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7 (32/64bit)


It is true that there is a lot of software that report CPU and RAM usage, but almost all of it display it on a desktop or in some other area of the screen that is generally obscured by other windows ... that makes it not so useful. This compact utility displays the real-time CPU and RAM usage right on the taskbar's notification area (next to the system clock) that is always visible:


Special features:

  • Real-time reporting of the CPU activity.
  • Real-time reporting on the system RAM usage.
  • Color coding of the readout can indicate the CPU/RAM load even without seeing the actual numbers.
  • This program does not require installation, or administrative privileges to operate and can be run from any location on your hard drive.
  • This program also obtains the following information about the CPU(s) (or, Central Processing Units) on your system:
    • Brand name of the CPU.
    • CPU architecture, i.e. 32-bit, 64-bit, etc.
    • CPU clock reading.
    • Number of physical and logical CPU cores.
    • Number of NUMA nodes.
    • Information about L1/L2/L3 caches.
    • Additional technical information about CPU, reported directly by the die itself.
  • This program also obtains the following information about the RAM (or system memory):
    • Capacity of each RAM module in bytes.
    • Form factor (DIMM, RIMM, etc.)
    • Memory type (SDRAM, DDR, DDR-2, etc.)
    • Type detail (synchronous, nonvolatile, etc.)
    • RAM speed (566 ns, 800 ns, etc)
    • Data width (64 bits, etc)
    • Interleave information.
    • Serial, manufacture's, SKU and part numbers on RAM modules.
    • And more, where available.
  • We also attempted to write this program with as small of an imprint on the system resources as possible to improve the accuracy of its reporting.

Besides retrieving the wealth of technical information about your system, that of course can be used to verify the authenticity of your hardware, a novice user can use this utility to monitor the "health" of their PC. The rule of thumb is pretty simple: If the CPU usage starts to peak regularly at over 50% this means that there's some activity going on in your system. This generally indicates some work being done on the background, and if you're not aware of anything going on that you requested, this may indicate some faulty background program, or even a virus. Getting rid of that will greatly speed up your computer and improve usability. The system RAM reading can also indicate a system that is either low on memory, if RAM usage peaks at 75% or more, or that some program needs to be closed to stabilize the system. The bottom line is this, use this free tool to check the workability of your computer. We use it all the time and want to share with you!


Available offline in the installation package.


Visible tray notification area, and TruColor display with a 32-bit color scheme.
