This version is an update of Matt's RAM Meter, which fixes issues with Maverick and Yosemite. The update also increases customizability.


Change the first line to match your system's total RAM in Megabytes. For example:


means you have 16GB of RAM.


You can change the number of ticks and tick character in the second and third line. For example:


means your meter will have 20 dots in total. (Refer to screenshot).

By default, the border color is set to red (31). To change the color, find the following line:

#Border tick
echo "\033[1;31m$tickchar\033[0m\c"

and change the 31 to another number. To change the color of the unused memory ticks, find a similar line and change the 30 to another number.

For Coders

The used RAM in megabytes is defined as:

usedRAM=`top -l 1 | awk '/PhysMem/ {print $2}' | sed s/M// `
