Editor: atMonitor is the most advanced monitoring tool for Mac OS X that displays system activity in real-time. It is designed to allow quick assessment of computer's state and it is powerful enough to make it a core utility in anyone's system troubleshooting toolkit. atMonitor offers a better alternative to Apple's own "Activity Monitor" and combines the best of the features of many other existing monitoring utilities. It also adds an extensive list of unique features of its own. In addition to the standard CPU, GPU, VRAM, FPS, Disk and Network info, atMonitor allows interaction with processes, setting Up triggers, logging, purging RAM and much more.
There are three different ways atMonitor can display the monitored values: - in the menu bar - in the floating window on the desktop - in the dock icon
MinTop. Displays top 3 most CPU hungry applications. Right clicking on the view will allow to customize the list by excluding chosen applications.
CPU. Supports multiple cores. Clicking on the view will display detailed Process information and the top 3 CPU intensive processes.
RAM. Shows memory specifications and the usage broken down into wired, used and free. It also tracks the top 3 memory hog processes and allows to "Purge" - recover memory (dev tools must be installed for the Purge feature to work).
GPU. Supports multiple GPUs. Clicking the view will display video graphics card brand and the number of contexts and surfaces.
