ProcessControl — Deal with misbehaving processes

Recommended Posts

Call top for an auto-updating list of processes, ordered by CPU usage. Type to filter by process name.



On each process:

  • ⌘↵ quits.
  • ⌥↵ forcibly kills.
  • ⌃↵ limits CPU usage.
  • fn↵ lowers priority (increases niceness).
  • ⇧↵ freezes.

↵ gives more granularity over the options.

Titles in granular control show value. This is mostly a cosmetic change to make it clearer.

To update, download the latest version (same URL) or wait a few days and it’ll prompt you to on next usage, since it uses OneUpdater.

I don't know why Top Processes doesn't work.


Because it hasn’t been updated in four years, and things that started to break were never fixed. I also used that Workflow, until it got so broken I decided to make this alternative.
