I've got Nokia CS-17 internet stick and looking for a simple utility that would show me my connection speed and transfer volumes while i'm connected, ideally directly in the menu bar.

I don't want to use the utility provided by the vendor. I'm using Mac OSX 10.6 (Snow Leopard).

I'm using Menu Meter.

MenuMeters is a set of CPU, memory, disk, and network monitoring tools for Mac OS X. Although there are numerous other programs which do the same thing, none had quite the feature set I was looking for. Most were windows that sat in a corner or on the desktop, which are inevitably obscured by document windows on a laptop's small screen. Those monitors which used the menubar mostly used the NSStatusItem API, which has the annoying tendency to totally reorder my menubar on every login.

What results does that give, every image I look at from that program just shows settings and no graphs or data. – Ivo Flipse Aug 20 '11 at 12:37
I added a screen shot and linked to the original developer homepage. Maximus, you could take a look at How to Answer and try to make your answers really stand out! /cc @Ivo – slhck Aug 20 '11 at 12:41
it will give you one or multiple icons in your menu bar with will display network/ IO/ processor /memory usage. when clicking on the icon you'll get detail. it sets up in the pref panel so it's also easy to install and configure – MaximusPerchus Aug 20 '11 at 12:42
