    'top' disagrees with CPU Monitor

    OK, now I know what you are looking at. First, yes-- top shows the kernel usage--it shows everything. If you are watching CPU monitor during a compile and you are looking at the list of items in top. It appears as though the processes are not doing much and certainly don't add up to what...

    'top' disagrees with CPU Monitor

    Or another thought occured to me--maybe your system has been hacked and the top command was replaced with a broken one that hides the hack. And CPUmonitor is actually telling the truth. The way to know more certainly, is if your network connection is also maxed out (somebodies using that CPU...

    'top' disagrees with CPU Monitor

    You are not comparing apples to apples (ahem) here. While both will monitor and display a % of CPU usage, obviously both do things differently to display that info. CPU monitor has to generate all the fancy flashing lights and stuff in the GUI (and that takes more effort. But this is only...

    Can't ping myself

    Sorry if this is way off--but did you install a second Apache server or modify the one that is currently running? If you installed a second Apache things might be a little messed up. First turn off Apache in the Apple Sharing System Pref Panel. Then from a terminal window type "top", if...

    PHP 4 and OSX

    I saw the directory for php when I first installed OS X. I don't think it is broken so much as some files (libraries?) left there from a previous incarnation. At any rate it seems like you have PHP running at Much like Red Hat Linux (which includes PHP) I wouldn't recommend running...
