Eclipse System Monitor provides information about performance or load of the host on which Eclipse runs. It is designed to be unobtrusive but yet visible enough to watch the system performance from the corner of one’s eye. The monitor is (usually) displayed on lower border of the Eclipse workbench inside the status bar.
Eclipse System Monitor requires at least two Eclipse plugins: "Eclipse System Monitor Core" and so called "OS Specific Extension". The first plugin provides OS independent System Monitor functionality which rely on operating system specific data collectors. These "data collectors" for different operating systems are provided by various "OS Specific Extensions".
