(Windows) Treemap visualization of memory and CPU utilization
Panopticon Explorer is a free Windows tool for visualizing memory usage and CPU utilization. Memory usage is shown as a treemap: the more memory a process consumes, the bigger its box on the display. CPU utilization is shown with color: the more CPU, the redder the box.
- To see the memory/CPU display, go to Favorites > Shortcuts > My Processes
- Turn off the menus and sidebars by clicking the icon at the lower-right corner
- Save your configuration by clicking File > Save Workbook. You can then double-click the file and it will show the tool with the menus and sidebars removed, etc.
