I use a really cool App called Sensei to monitor stuff on my iMac. You can check just about anything on your Mac with this App. It is really easy to read and well supported. Well, Sensei just go better with the new “Monitor” feature. The “Monitor” feature allows you to see what is going on with your Mac hardware (including attached drives) at a glance. Here is what that looks like.
Here is the main window of Sensei when you first bootup the App.
When you click on the “Monitor” feature you get this window.
The settings selected in the middle column are displayed in the right column. As you can see, this is a fairly comprehensive overview of your Mac hardware. You can adjust this bye clicking on “Edit Combined Panel” in the upper right corner of the window.
If you wanted to add a module to the main window, just drag it over there.
I dragged “RAM Usage” over, it really is easy. When you are done just click “Save”. Of course, you can drag modules off of the main window as well, kind of customize it.
A really useful App just got better. The Sensei Monitor feature is a great overall picture of your hardware.
