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?

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?
