Thanks...I like to have the option to enable or not.It is useful to me for initially keeping an eye on possible misbehaving apps.Probably should be in a different thread but is it maybe possible in future build to have an option to show tray icon cpu utilization as numerical as well as the current colour bar?.

Ability to showing the tray icon as number instead of graph.
For example, Total CPU/Memory usage or Responsiveness is 48%, then we showing as 48.(see the attach)
Thank ellison for asking this feature. ;)

And also provide the ability to showing Total Memory Usage with the tray icon. ;)

PS:I just moving the icon to there, so sorry for the misplacing if you are perfectionist. ;D
Edit:Edited for my bad English and asking for more.

I second to this great request. I would love to see numeric RAM usage percentage instead of CPU usage.

So let change it a bit. :)

I also like this idea, with one modification. Keep the bar graph as is and just superimpose a numerical % in a contrasting color.

So you means the tray icon should ability to:
1.Like now, showing the bar graph
2.Showing the numerical
3.Showing the bar graph+small numerical
4.Showing the bar graph+numerical superimpose
And, who can find some tray icon that showing like some of this?
So it will be easy to know that, it is the right one or not. :)

That would be cool  :) the cpu bar with superimposed numerical %. I'm not sure if that would be easy to do though.Ive used a few monitoring apps over the years and never seen one that had both those features in 1 icon except where the icon is split between the two,so it would be a first for me if that were possible?. On a side note i think its a great reflection of satisfaction in a piece of software ,that's reached such a standard that all i want now is more  eye candy  ;)

BenYeeHua

lol, yes, it is just like eye candy.
Just like the digital clock or analog clock, nearly accurate or just fine. :)

And yes, I think you has meet it with your smartphone, check the Android apps.
For example.
Battery!!! ;D

Hotrod

Any of those examples would suffice, though I would be just as pleased with the existing icon with a simple numerical overlay of xx%.

BenYeeHua

Me too, as the tray icon as a little smaller, I will like a little bigger numerical or the right font which like the windows time, can be reading clearly. :)
