Applications :: Measure RAM / Processor Usage Of Running

Mar 1, 2009

I was wondering if there is an application available that will allow you measure how much a running application is tasking your RAM and processor. (I ask because I recently downloaded a programme called DarkAdapter. It allows me to make my display even dimmer than the default dimming device on the new unibody Macbook. When I run the programme, however, my machine noticeably slows down.)

MacBook :: Running Hot Due To System CPU Usage?

Jan 18, 2009

I've been monitoring the CPU temperatures on my 2 week old alu macbook frequently, and it always hovers at ~42 degrees celsius. However, today something odd happened, all of a sudden the computer was getting noticeable hotter (the fans remained off though), when I checked CPU temp it was up to 72 degrees. I checked with "Activity Monitor" and nothing was using up more than 2% CPU. Then I saw through iStatPro that system CPU usage was at 40%. What the hell? Its usually at 2-5%...i.e. always. After restarting, the system cpu usage was back down to 2% and the temperature slowly dropped back to its norm.

OS X Yosemite :: Why Mail 8.1 Running At 400% CPU Usage

Dec 2, 2014

Why Mail is running at 400% cpu usage while trying to download an email?  I have an Apple email account and Exchange account set up with Mail.  I never ran into any problem with Mavericks but after upgrading to Yosemite, Mail now frequently runs up to 400% any time it is open.  The problem only occurs when Mail is trying to get a message from the server, although it does not hang on every email, only certain ones that I can see in the 'Activity' Window.  I've already tried to delete the accounts and restart from scratch.  Now my co-worker just upgraded to Yosemite is experiencing the exact same problem on his macbook.  The only way to temporarily fix the problem is to delete that specific email message Mail is trying to get from the server.  It will be fine until it hangs on another email later on.  The program is still usable but will drain the battery in less than an hour just for having Mail open.  Now I only open Mail when I want to check emails if I'm on battery only, then immediately close it.

PowerPC :: 3GB Ram Is Running Super Slow And Memory Usage Is Almost Maxed?

Apr 27, 2008

I recently bought a Power Mac G5 with 3 20" cinema displays, each with their own video card. I've since stopped using one and it sped up some. But even with the most simple tasks, it is hella slow and freezes sometimes. If I just have Firefox and iTunes open, it runs slow and the fans kick in overdrive. The main video card is an ATI Radeon x800 with 256 RAM and the other is a 9200 with 128 RAM. how to free up my RAM and speed it up?

MacBook :: Measure Your Pro's Temperature?

May 20, 2010

I see people stating the temperatures of their MBPs, fairly often in this forum. How do you do that?

By the way, I got my new 17" i7 MBP, yesterday, and it runs noticeably cooler than my 2006 core duo 2.16 MBP. Nonetheless, I'm still curious what the processor temperature is, and curious how you measure it.

Thank you for any help you can provide.

OS X :: How To Measure Throughput Of External Hdd To Mac Mini

May 27, 2010

Believe me i know the numerous problems i could be having and i have been exploring them all for several months. I think it is a combination of things and this might be one. I have a 4 tb graid FireWire external hdd that i think runs slightly smoother but i want to see some actual transfer rate numbers before i start investing in a new array.

I also have a 2010 i7 mbp with 8 gb ram and 256 ssd on the way and if that baby doesn't run the movies smoothly then i will have to assume i have an encoding issue or there is some flaw in snowleopard. Also in case anyone was wondering i have hardware acceleration enabled in plex.

Intel Mac :: How To Measure The Current/power

May 3, 2012

After I moved from my old house to my new appartment, my 24" late 2006 iMac instantly started making this annoying high pitch noise.  I've tracked it to coming from the area around the hard drive fan. 

I believe there might be a problem with the ground connection in the electricity system in the building.  Is there a way to measure the current running through my dear iMac? 

ps.: also see my previous post where I tried to figure out what might be the problem.

Applications :: Firefox 4.0 B7 - Increased RAM Usage...

Nov 11, 2010

So the latest beta is apparently 64-bit to begin with. I've also noticed that it uses more RAM than the previous (beta) versions, which is quite disappointing. It now uses up even more RAM than Safari!! Has anyone else noticed that?

I also don't like the the new "page loading" status because it doesn't tell much - seems like a copy of Chrome's too. I preferred how it was in the previous beta version.

Applications :: Firefox And 100 Cpu Usage - How To Manage To Smooth

Sep 19, 2010

...Firefox on my mac pushes my cpu to 100% usage!

I use to have about 20 tabs open all the time, but this is not the case in c2d cpu, I think.

So, when so many things (osx, addons versions, ff versions) changes, I really do not know what else to search for, in order to make my firefox have a normal cpu usage.

Applications :: Logic Studio 2 (Mainstage) Usage?

Sep 22, 2009

So I just got a look at the Logic Studio 2 Package and was a really interested in MainStage. I play a Gibson Les Paul 1957 Standard and an ESP Horizon FR-II. I currently only have one guitar effect pedal and a large Crate amp - those I am planning on upgrading until I saw MainStage. I saw some videos that you can select different model amps and effects to use live and for recording.

What would be the ideal device to get so I could plug my guitar in? Is there a pedal board I could use to program and change effects in MainStage?

Applications :: Finding Network Usage Monitor App?

I'm looking for an app that monitors my network usage. Currently, I use iStat Pro, but that "forgets" the "Total In" value upon reboot.

I want to monitor my network activity over a month or so, to see what my average usage per month / day is.
Is there any app that keeps the progress?
