Version 1.6.2 / Mar 21, 2008
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.
Limitations described in this review are gone since the project became absolutely free to use.
Starting with version 1.6 Systemometer goes freeware and removes all limitations of Personal Edition. Enjoy the complete set of features on Windows NT, 2000, XP, and 2003!
Version 1.6.2 adds control to visibility of current, average, and maximal values individually. Corrected displaying maximal line for inverted axis. Fixed window start-up to follow minimized, maximized, or normal mode specified in the shortcut properties.
Version 1.6.1 features updates in installation program to handle correctly placing files into non-default location, and minor usability fix in Counters dialog.
Version 1.6 adds limited support for Windows Vista. In order to access performance data Systemometer will prompt to confirm elevation to Administrator privileges. However screen saver is not supported for Windows Vista at this moment due to operating system restrictions on accessing performance data in screen saver mode.
