Systemometer is a freeware monitoring tool that shows system performance and resources in a spider chart. Different shapes of monitoring polygon draw visual patterns associated with normal or critical system states. This snapshot view helps to read the overall system status at a glance. Systemometer records the history of counter values to the log file in either HTML or CSV format. You can run it as a screen saver.

Terrific tool! It is compact yet loaded with useful options.

I only found one issue: On a dual screen setup, the screensaver centers the spider chart on the "crack" between monitors. Please provide a left/right option.
