What is the best way to find out how well your Mac is running? No news is good news, right? If it is running, it must be OK. Or, then common wisdom goes on.
The fact is that your Mac is a complicated animal with lots of hardware, sensors and things that can go away. Instead of waiting for a problem to occur, check the Mac once a week or so with the free CheckMyMac app.
Not only does CheckMyMac monitor specific hardware components but also monitor sensors, including hardware component temperatures. One click gives you a list of Mac's basic hardware components, CPU usage, RAM usage, VRAM usage, GPU usage, and RPM for Mac's various fans.
Everything appears on a very attractive dashboard. [1
Your Mac is also home to a variety of sensors, most of which control and monitor temperatures. These include:
- Wi-Fi Card
- Cooling Lamp
Vente. There is more. CleanMyMac also lets you clean your Mac's RAM (especially useful on older Macs with less RAM) and control fan speeds.
Given the lack of a price tag, CleanMyMac is well done, looks great, and performs features like all Mac user needs. While the app is described and categorized as free, it's really donationware.
