Spot-O-Meter is an application that measure the CPU and I/O intensity of Spotlight indexing. This application can tell you how much Spotlight is interfering with your system, or if it's interfering at all. Intense Spotlight indexing can bottleneck a system, sometimes making a user think there's something wrong with their systems. Spot-O-Meter, if it does nothing more, can at least tell you if the performance problems you may be experiencing are real or Spotlight induced. Spot-O-Meter is also part of our SpotOff commercial application.

Really good product. Does what is says. It's simple to use. Has manual and help that are good. About the only thing I see as a shortcoming is that it doesn't support Tiger. Some of us that still have to user older versions could have really benefited from a Tiger version. Spotlight seems to me to be terrible on Tiger and Leopard, esp. on laptops
