    is there a desktop monitor or widget or something that will show the activity of my 4 mac pro drives? I'd like a visual representation of the activity so I can see which drive is being accessed and when, and to see if I can speed things up in any way.

    anyone know of an app like this?

    iStat Pro should be good for that. Actually, any of the iStat versions should work.

    Actually MenuMeters isn't what I was looking for. It has read/write indicators, but not for the individual drives, just 1 set of lights for all drives.

    It would be nice to just have 4 dots up in the menu for each drive, and the blinked what that drive was being access. Is there anything like that out there?
