In Ubuntu Indicator-Multiload is an essential application as it shows that computer is actually doing something even when an application is giving no feedback for a long period of time. Conky is not an option as it gets hidden behind full screen applications.

Unfortunately the move to Gnome has broken indicator-multiload so that it can't show all of the indicators.

Swap
System Load

I've tried the developers suggestion of installing TopIcons and TopIconsplus to no avail. I see that Ubuntu App-Indicator is also installed so maybe app-indicator extension is broken in Gnome and not indicator-multiload.

Anyway steps to reproduce:
Install Ubuntu 16.04.x LTS
Install indicator-multiload
Open the settings of indicator-multiload by clicking on it and choosing settings
Click all of the sources on
You will now see 6 panels showing the earlier described graphs.

Now install Ubuntu 17.10 Daily
Install indicator-multiload
Mouse over the top bar to faintly get an idea where indicator-multiload is running
click on it and open the settings
Click all of the sources on
You will now see tiny faint lines which give no clue whatsoever as to what is going on with the machine.

Please fix either app-indicator extension or indicator-multiload to work with Gnome. Thanks
