Venmon is a robust real-time system resource monitoring utility that includes a multi-ping tool.
It can monitor system memory, processor, battery life, uptime, idle time, network traffic, and drives. Venmon utilizes minimal memory and processing power while displaying the compiled statistics.
Venmon's UI is broken down into two different displays; a mini window and the main window. The mini window is a super-compact display of all details that can float on your desktop in any position. To call up the main (or big) window, you can double-click on the mini, and the main window will be displayed. The main has several tabs representing different areas of interest. These tabs include system, processor, networks, ping, and settings. All of which provide in-depth details about the titled category they represent.
Venmon also includes many operational shortcuts, all of which are displayed below.
