Nice, now I don't need to dig through folders on the system every now and then. This utility tells me about all that agents and daemons, including much more...

Thanks

I too cannot heap enough praise on this diagnostic app. Since finding it a few weeks ago I use it constantly and am amazed at the old and redundant processes that keep on loading up and slowing a system down. Sincere thanks to the author(s)

Incredibly useful diagnostic tool for techies. Even more amazing is that it's free and periodically updated.

Just what I needed, running three different machines, and a more useful report than System Profiler. Thanks!

Fake reviews by developer don't change how unstable this is. It keeps crashing and finally locked up my computer. The developer doesn't respond to emails.

Try trashing its preferences file in ~/Library/Preferenes (with app not running.) It will build a new one. Prefs often get corrupted. Etre has been stable on two different machine / systems for me.

This is one fine & useful program. Last week it showed me a hidden keylogger (Spector) from 2003, in a folder it created, called StartItems; it was using 89% of my CPU power, and of course it revealed to whoever installed it, everything about me, my Mac and all my accounts. I can't express my appreciation enough. I have given it to my Mac IT & Mac Diagnostic friends, who simply love it, and wish to thank the developer through me.

An absolutely incredible program, that deserves much praise and appreciation.

I'm interested in the application, but what information does it provide that the OS X System Activity application doesn't?

Sorry -- I wrote too quickly. I did try out the application and it does provide a nice summary of a lot of things. I just meant with respect to process resource use that you could get that information -- and a lot more -- from System Activity. Is the advantage that it gives a brief summary of the applications using the most resources? (Wish there were a way to edit my comments here.)
