Thanks for the heads up, Carol. Downloading it now. Some of the new features look great!

yes, thanks Carol! This really is an excellent tool! I've replaced TaskManager with it and what an extraordinary improvement!

Thanks Carol!  I usually realize there's a new version there about three months after the fact. This was a pleasant tip.

thanks Carol

wow that firefox is using lots of memory (closing a few tabs helps though - only 50 now :-[ )


dunno should i be starting new thread with the following:-

I've noticed in other posts/screenshots:
On systems with multiple CPUs the System Information dialog includes a Show one graph per CPU checkbox. Checking it switches the display into a per-processor view....
.
I noticed this on my new dual core (intel) computer once or twice but then no more

I wonder if I changed some setting but dont think it's optional - it's there or not I reckon...
Anyone come across similar problem ?

It seems to be available on the system display but not on properties for individual processes.

If you click on the system info button (CTRL+I) on the main page it is interesting that a tool tip has been added to the CPU graph which shows the top CPU user - and you can hover over individual CPUs to see what is happening.

The main page also shows a CPU history trace per CPU top right:

...

ahh, that's where I saw it. thanks Carol!

I thought the main page was CPU, memory & something else
hang on -
from help:
mini graphs for CPU, memory, and if on Windows 2000 or higher, I/O history
&
this I had edited from above quote (now I see - it says "System Information dialog" ) :
On systems with multiple CPUs the System Information dialog includes a Show one graph per CPU checkbox. Checking it switches the display into a per-processor view. Hyperthreaded (SMT) processors sharing the same core and NUMA processors sharing the same node are grouped together and the mouse tooltip shown when hovering over a graph displays the processor and core or node numbers. Note that the mouse tooltips for a processor graph show the name of the process that consumed the most CPU on the entire system at the associated time, not the process that consumed the most CPU on the particular CPU.

When you download the Process Observer file, you will see a few video links at the side of the page.  There is a seminar by Mark Russinovitch on Advanced Malware Cleaning using this software.  You need a file player download called Silverlight to view it (looks like MS is after Flash Player), but it is really an interesting (I really need to get out more) tutorial on the capabilities of Process Observer.  It is an hour and twenty-some minutes long, so be forewarned.  The link to the clip's page is:
http://www.microsoft...alware_Cleaning.aspx
I don't know if clicking on this page will invoke the option to download Silverlight, so you may have to search for that if it does not offer itself when you go there.  Knowing MS, the page will automatically scan your HD and KNOW that you don't have it installed.

Process Explorer:  :-* (OS X activity monitor sucks in comparison)

What columns do most people use?
