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

I'm using gnome 2 right now and looking to switch to unity, but one thing that I really miss is the old gnome 2 system monitor:

The Gnome 2 system monitor

I found something like this for KDE, but the bars were really thin and didn't give a good idea of the recent history of some system's usage.

Is there something like this that I can embed in one of the taskbars in Unity?

Failing that, is there something like this for any desktop environment other than Gnome 2?

The best alternative I know is Indicator Multiload. The review and installation instructions can be found here.

  • Nice. I didn't know about that one. It's in Oneiric too :) – Jo-Erlend Schinstad Sep 28 '11 at 6:51
