Ubuntu – ny Widget that can show the CPU and other performances live


I am ubuntu user currently working on Image Processing Project, I need to have a constant look at my CPU and Ram usage which is shown in system monitor very clearly but I have to switch between system monitor and my Project to see the graphs and cpu usage. Is there any solution so that I don't have to switch and there is widget at the status bar that can show these performances other than small Icons like indicators.

For the ultimate convenience I've found this gnome extension, install it's dependencies first, then hit the switch on the web page.
