DiskSpy Solid is a more advanced version of DiskSpy. In addition to giving users a "software disk LED" that shows local disk reads and writes in the menu bar, DiskSpy Solid also shows network activity in the menu bar. DiskSpy Solid will show when a read or write is occurring on any active physical network interface. Some possible uses include watching reads and writes to network disks (including Apple's iDisk service, AFP/NFS/Samba/WebDAV disks, and FTP servers), watching a program use the network, or simply testing to see if a connection is working.
What's new in this version:
- Fixed even more problems that were causing DiskSpy Solid to quit on launch in OS X 10.1.x. It has now been confirmed by testing to work in 10.1.x.
- Added a "PPP mode" to DiskSpy Solid that makes it work even better on modem and PPPoE connections.
- DiskSpy Solid now uses a separate set of icons for disk and network traffic.
- Made a slight improvement to CPU usage when the disks and network are idle.
- Added more themes.
