For System 7.0 - 7.6 - Mac OS 9
Guides on emulating older applications

This little application is a very useless one. It just shows the Macintosh CPU usage. However, if you have ever seen those X-Window users showing off their nifty little CPU usage windows, you now can blast them away with CPU-View. Because, this one uses textures! Ha!

About Memory...
The size of the window which CPU-View displays is dependent on the available memory. The larger the partition of memory reserved for CPU-View the larger the window can become.

CPU-View checks possible memory changes with each adjustment and reports if memory gets low. If this happens, go to the Finder and change CPU-Views preferred size with Get Info. Sometimes memory may get tight (like when you use large pixel patterns) such that CPU-View will not acknowledge your wishes. Don't worry, just change the amount of memory with Get Info.

CPU-View is completely free!!!

For a more accurate representation see:

Architecture: 68k PPC

Only runs on Macintoshes which support Color QuickDraw or it will show a dialog and quit.

This looks neat, thanks for sharing. A few years ago, I searched the Web for any processor utilisation monitor program for Mac OS 9, and I could not find any.
