Sloth is a program that displays a list of all open files in use by all the applications your user account is running on the system-this list includes IP and Unix sockets, character devices and directories, and is generated by the 'lsof' command. This list is presented along with the names of applications using the file and their process IDs. This makes it easy to monitor what applications are 'locking' which files. Sloth is a graphical interface front-end to 'lsof', a powerful unix tool.

I had some problems with the archive I downloaded for this app. First of all, BetterZip encountered an error and couldn't extract it. Second, ArchiveUtility was able to extract the archive, but the version of the app and folder extracted showed as 1.3.1. Strangely, the contents of the archive when displayed in BetterZip before extraction showed a folder numbered 1.4. I tried redownloading in case the file had become corrupt, but I had the same issue. Anyone have any suggestions?

Very nifty utility! Though, sorting items by column doesn't seem to work.

It does! But it does not save the window size and position. Thats nasty.

What a handy little utility - thank-you!

IMO, "Ferret" would have been a more appropriate name for it; though, of course, the icon...

...wouldn't have been any prettier! *LOL*

Surely you could have used a much more appropriate icon display... that one is just sick... meh.

Meh...though the icon didn't say much for the app, I decided to give it a chance... to find out it doesn't work... and that each time I double-click the app to open, it "unexpectedly quits"... For those looking for a more suitable, stable app I recommend "Cunning Fox".

The icon is "sick"? Because it's a picture of a sloth?Are you offended at the angle of the picture?

Three points...

1) Paste a new icon, it's easy. I can't imagine being offended by the icon, personally... but if nature is so unnatural to you, by all means... command-i and paste a new one. You can even put a new Sloth.icns file inside the app and change the internal icon if you like.

2) Works fine here.

3) It's free... and it is not the same thing as Cunning Fox. Sloth shows files in use by an app... it is not necessarily a process viewer. Different idea.

Very nice, and useful. I just missed the hability to order the items clicking in the column title. A "search" function would be awesome! ;)
Thanks for making it free for everyone.
