What can replace system monitoring in the top Gnome Panel in Unity?

I was wondering if its still possible to get the Activity Monitor for things like load and ram usage like you used to be able to on 10.04 LTS.

I noticed that all them disappeared after the upgrade to 12.04, now all I get is the File, Edit menu buttons on that bar is there a way to add to this section of the menu bar?

Install Indicator Multiload:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:indicator-multiload/stable-daily
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install indicator-multiload

Network, memory and cpu usage indicator; this is a port of the original System Monitor GNOME Panel applet (gnome-system-monitor applet).

In Preferences you can customize the output to fit it to your desktop theme:
