RAM Use Pie Chart?
« on: December 01, 2007, 10:28:51 PM »
Anyone know of a real-time resource monitor thingie (like Sysinternals Process Explorer) that displays the amount of RAM used by each process, but with a summary pie-chart?  I envision each process having a slice of the pie, the biggest slices going to the biggest resource hogs.

Anyone?  Anyone?

Hi Ralf,

I've seen something, somewhere that does this ... I don't have much time dig around but you could try:

1) search: "data visualization, RAM usage, Intel"
and play the search terms. You might get lucky.
Treemaps are all the rage - another option instead of Ye Olde Pie Charte. ;)

2) Quizz Russinovich  & Co @ the PE forum.
http://forum.sysinte...rum_topics.asp?FID=2

Could be interesting as an add-on.

Would be interested myself to demonstrate to my clients CPU + RAM usage in simple to understand pictures the sins of bad JAVA etc. Wishing you luck.

The closest thing would be this feature that TuneUp Utililites' System Information has built-in:

You have to buy the entire suite, though. And too bad for Nighted, it's not edible.

Thanks, Plasma Man & Lashiec.

The TuneUp pie-chart looks interesting, but it appears to show only one process slice at a time.  I was hoping to pin down a particular process' memory hogging behavior by looking at the chart and the offender leaping out at me.

Oh well... I guess I'll go back to PE and keep doing what I've been doing: sort the "Working Set" column and try to catch the transgressor that way.

The pie chart would've just made me hungry anyway.

There used to be such a program. Panopticon released a freeware licensed app call Panopticon Explorer. At least, that's what it was called. Then it was called "Panopticon Explorer .NET Learning Edition" but now the file is no longer hosted by Panopticon.

Can someone find a copy of the program? I've searched Google and Softpedia to no avail. Please post in the thread if you have a link. And don't worry, it was licensed as freeware, so...
