Full description 'LavaPS' is an interactive process-trackin'LavaPS' is an interactive process-tracking program that presents a small amount of important information in a graphical analog form (as opposed to lots of information presented digitally). It runs in the background and quickly and simply gives you a rough idea of what's happening. Each blob represents a process. Blob size is proportional to memory usage, and movement is proportional to CPU usage. Color is a combination of program name (which decided the hue) and time since the program last ran (which decides saturation): things that haven't run in a while are stationary and dark, while things that run a lot are bright and moving. A popup box gives more information about a process. Clicking the left button brings up the popup, the right button brings up a control menu.the right button brings up a control menu.
