You can possibly use indicator-multiload.

Install it from the Ubuntu Software Center or using the command line:

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

enter image description here

You can configure some of the things from the Preferences.

indicator-multiload doesn't have the same functionality as indicator-cpufreq to control the CPU frequency. After doing a lot of research I couldn't get indicator-cpufreq to work with Ubuntu 12.04. Finally I found Jupiter and it works well:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:webupd8team/jupiter
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install jupiter

for indicator-multiload you can also add cpu freq:

Preferences -> Menu items -> add

$(frequency(cpufreq.cur0)) - $(percent(cpu.cpu0.inuse)) $(frequency(cpufreq.cur1)) - $(percent(cpu.cpu1.inuse))


frequency in menu item
