How can I measure Iguana Server system requirements?

Mac OS X: View CPU

To view the CPU usage:

  • Click Finder > Applications > Utilities > Activity Monitor. The Activity Monitor allows you to view the system CPU usage in real time.
  • Click the CPU tab to view the CPU stats.

Note: Any process can be selected for deeper inspection. To inspect a process, double-click it from the Activity Monitor. In the window you’ll find information about an application’s memory usage, various statistics, and a list of files that the process is making use of.

CPU Parameter Description Value Suggested Average Threshold
% CPU Shows the CPU percentage that each process is using. 1.50% 10-15%; threshold can increase if Iguana is the only main application running on the machine (not including background processes). For the most part this number should be below 20%, with only the occasional spike.
