Memory Usage Getter

2.6
17 January 2006

Visual interface displays memory/cpu usage.

Overview

Memory Usage Getter is a utility that allows you to monitor the memory and CPU usage of all open applications and background processes under Mac OS X. It presents all apps and processes in a single table, or it can automatically separate out your user's processes from other user processes and separate them into three tabs for easier viewing.

Memory Usage Getter is also designed to allow easy visual assessment of how much memory and CPU is being used, by presenting bar graphs representing the memory and CPU usage of each process directly in the tables, and by presenting an overall memory usage bar graph in each window as well as in the Dock icon, if desired.

Memory Usage Getter can also present a history window for individual processes to allow you to keep track of the memory and CPU usage over time with a graph for each. Furthermore, logging of memory and CPU usage statistics can be activated for a single process or for all processes.

But these aren't the only features offered in Memory Usage Getter: others include one-click revealing of apps and processes in the Finder, the ability to set the priority or to kill processes in Mac OS X, and even dedicated keystrokes to killing the most frequently used programs like the Finder, the Dock, the right side of the menu bar, the Classic Environment, and even Front Row.

What's new in Memory Usage Getter

Version 2.6:
  • If a process quits and then is launched again, the process history windows will now realize this and continue updating the graphs
  • If a process survives a kill, MUG now automatically force kills it
  • New "Kill Special" menu items with command keystrokes for fast access to killing the Dock, Dashboard, the Finder, the menu bar, Classic, and Front Row
  • Corrected inaccurate Dock Icon/Overall Graph Window CPU usage reporting
  • Double-clicking on processes in table views will now either reveal it in the Finder, open a history window for that process, or kill the process. This is a user-customizable option.
  • Multiple selections are now allowed in the table views, and you can perform actions on every selected item
  • Dashboard widgets in Tiger can now be easily distinguished in Tab and List View windows, and they correctly reveal in the Finder
  • Memory Usage Getter is now a universal binary and should run on Macs with Intel processors (feature untested)
  • A multitude of various other bug fixes and interface improvements

I know people are scared of unix, but paying a shareware fee for something you can get by typing the command "top" into a terminal window seems a little exaggerated to me...

ok, Einstein... do you realize that the BSD subsystem is installed by default by each and every Mac OS X installer CD? doh.

Be sure to have BSD subsystem installed before using Memory Usage Getter or trying to run the "top" command in the Terminal app. I've been confounded by MUG quitting on launch for months until someone who recently installed Panther (OS X v10.3) told me that he was having the same problems and installing the BSD subsystem solved them. A quick trip to the Jaguar install CD to put in the BSD components and suddenly the program works as expected. A note should be included about this fact in the read me or the about file.

Works well - wouldn't pay $10 for it though.
