Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
CPU Usage Meter Using Task - CPU Usage Meter Using Task
Tue, December 02 2003 | 8:27PM | PermaLink Feedback?
"Ever wonder how much CPU time is being used on your computer? Want to know if your computer is idle or maybe maxed out crunching data? Most people check if their computer is busy by looking at the hard disk LED and seeing if it is blinking like crazy. Sometimes this works since the hard disk activity involves processor usage. But many times, the opposite is not true, i.e. the CPU load does not always correlate with hard disk activity. Windows 2000 and XP have a Task Manager (taskmgr.exe) which functions as a CPU usage meter. All we have to do is set it up so we can have the meter automatically start and hide itself in the system tray when Windows boots up."
