This plugin is not currently working in xfce 4.8 and seems not to be part of the official xfce release (it is from goodies.xfce.org). Does somebody know some other alternative for this task?

I have finally managed to get genmon applet working again. It needs to be recompiled with a tiny patch. I have not build an AUR package because this will likely be fixed soon. For anybody wanting to make genmon workable in XFCE 4.8, these were my steps (maybe you could need to install some other additional dependence):
~# pacman -S git xfce4-dev-tools gettext
~$ cd tmp
~/tmp$ git clone git://git.xfce.org/panel-plugins/xfce4-genmon-plugin
~/tmp$ cd xfce4-genmon-plugin/
~/tmp/xfce4-genmon-plugin$ wget -O thepatch "http://bugzilla.xfce.org/attachment.cgi?id=3064"
~/tmp/xfce4-genmon-plugin$ patch -p1 < thepatch
At this point configure will likely be automatically run by autogen. Then compile with make and use the new built plugin to replace the non working one:
~/tmp/xfce4-genmon-plugin# cat panel-plugin/xfce4-genmon-plugin > /usr/lib/xfce4/panel-plugins/xfce4-genmon-plugin
