Process Piglet 1.01.14

A reliable and user-friendly software solution that tracks how much memory each open process uses, then notifies you whenever the usage level increases too much
When running a lot of applications at the same time, it might be quite difficult to keep an eye on the RAM level each utility requires, so you might end up with a non-responsive or even a crashed PC before you get a chance to do anything. Process Piglet can help you avoid these situations by monitoring the open processes and displaying an alert whenever they use too much memory.

You simply need to open the application, then start launching all the others programs you typically run on a regular day - Process Piglet analyzes each of the process for 30 seconds so as to calculate how much RAM, on average, it needs to function properly.

At this point, you can minimize Process Piglet to the system tray and mind your own business, as it does not require any user input; you can also set it to run at Windows startup, so you no longer need to manually launch it.

The app will simply display a notification whenever one of the monitored process starts using too much RAM, thus offering you the possibility to analyze, then terminate or restart it.

This way, your computer will remain responsive and its overall performance will not be affected, no matter how many software utilities you are running.

Additionally, you can also create a list with all the applications you want to be ignored by Process Piglet, as well as enable an audio alert that will be played whenever a notification is displayed.

To wrap it up, Process Piglet can prove to be a reliable and handy software solution for all those who want to be in control of how much RAM their apps use, so as to prevent their PC from slowing down or even crashing.
