It’s very easy to jump to conclusions about specific programs sapping system resources, but can you be sure you’re pointing the finger in the right direction? It’s possible to monitor programs using Windows’ own Task Manager tool, but it’s lacking in several key areas, not least of which is the ability to review a program’s demands over a set period of time.

Kiwi Application Monitor – as the title suggests – aims to fill this gap. It can monitor both applications and processes, allowing you to build up a library of information about that program’s system demands over a period of time. You can even apply a series of basic rules that can alert you or take action when certain criteria – such as an application’s memory demands exceeding a particular figure – are met.

Click the Advanced Information button and you can get more detailed information about the program or process in question, including which modules (DLL files and the like) it’s utilising. Experienced users can even manually set the process’s priority level and working set too. (Incidentally, if you're looking for a tool to automatically rein in resource hogs, check out Process Lasso instead.)

In addition to these application-specific functions, Kiwi Application Monitor contains a number of related tools, such as monitors for processes, Services and a startup programs manager, that put even more relevant information at your fingertips.

Launch the program and click Add to get started. Either browse for a specific application or click Process explorer to choose from a list of running processes and applications. Provide a description for your benefit, then choose to apply any rules. Only those in the Basic tab are available in this free version, upgrade [http://www.drinkprog.com/kiwi/buy.php] to the Pro version for $37 to access advanced rules and statistics.

Everything’s bound up in a colourful and easy to understand interface, making it a remarkably accessible tool even for less experienced users. If you’ve been trying to track down a resource-hogging process or application, this could be just the tool you need.

Release 1.5.2

FIX:
- Variables don't update in some actions
- Canceling the rules export would sometimes throw an error

Verdict:

A refreshingly accessible and versatile tool for anyone who wants to know just how their system resources are being used.
