Some people have a compulsive need to keep tabs on their system. Whether it’s a mobile device or PC, they can’t help but constantly keep track of how it is performing and look for any opportunity to make further optimizations. An essential tool for anyone looking for information on the performance of their device is some kind of real time system monitor, and XDA Senior Member cgollner has developed a rather nice one for devices running Android 4.0 or above.
Simply titled, System Monitor, the application does just that. Offering real time system statistics in both text and graph form, you will be able to keep track of CPU, RAM, I/O, network, and top applications. Those with multi-core devices can choose to monitor total CPU load or each specific core independently if they choose. It’s also possible to alter the interval at which the statistics update to suit your preference. Clean and holo-themed throughout, the app is easy on the eye, which makes it all that much easier to grab the information you want quickly and easily.
As mentioned above, this application is only suitable for devices running Android 4.0 or above, and is available from the Play Store for free. A paid version is also available, which builds on the core functionality with features such as notifications and a DashClock extension. So if you’re looking for something to help you keep tabs on your device then this may well be worth a look, head on over to the application thread for more information._________
