    Specs:
    2011 MBP, i7, 16GB RAM, MBP 2.16Ghz Core Duo, 2GB ram, Dual 867Mhz MDD, 1.75GB ram, ATI 9800 Pro vid
    If you want to see what is happening you can run Activity Monitor in the Utilities folder.

    As far as setting things up, I'm not aware of any supplied tool. The system takes care of it self. I don't doubt a Unix admin could tweak a few things though.

    Please post your results to the thread as it is good feedback.

    I have heard that there is a way to tweak performance through root user and terminal, for instance how much ram a program uses or the amount of processer. But, xstep is right os x takes care of itself.
