As we already saw, OS X Activity Monitor is not the only way to access information about the applications we are running, etc. There are some more that, depending on what we are looking for, are better or worse adapted to our needs.

System Lens is another of those little utilities that allow us to check the CPU load at a glance. So, quickly and visually we will see which application is consuming more processor. This can be useful if, for example, you find that your computer is not responding as well as it should.

We will be able to adjust the limits for each value: low, medium and high CPU usage

When we launch the application, an icon will be installed in Finder’s menu bar that indicates the current load (High, Medium, Low, None). If we click on it then we’ll see the applications individually and if any particular one is overflowed without apparent cause we can even force the closing.

One of those apps that are not essential but maybe there are those who find it useful. By the way, if you are new to OS X you can access the window to Force the output of an application by simply pressing the combination of keyboard command + alt + esc key .
