I need to know how much internet activity is taking place on my iMac. I don't want something very detailed like Little Snitch or some professional network analysis tool. I'm looking at something simple that can simply upload/download speeds in the Mac OS Menu Bar next to the WiFi and other icons.

If you've used DUMeter or NetMeter on Windows, you know what I'm talking about.

Found the answer from another question. iStat Menus and MenuMeters do what I need.

Thanks to @Sathya!

The proper way to handle this is to request that the user leave the comment as an answer. He deserves the rep. – Daniel Beck Jul 5 '11 at 19:02
iStat Menus is not free and MenuMeters is not compatible with elCrapitan – pathfinder Jan 2 at 18:15
