Here is what PC Computing Magazine had to say in its October 1998 issue...
"The best tool we've seen for tracking down CPU hogs is CPU Meter '95, part of the Performance '95 package from BonAmi Software. The graphical display tracks CPU and RAM usage; if a program or thread spins out of control, you can stop it with a few clicks.
Here is what Alex Cruickshank of PC Direct Magazine wrote in a December 1997 review:
"... Performance '95. This is a fascinating utility that provides detailed information on the way the CPU is being utilised, breaking down the processor cycles according to the tasks, programs and DLLs that are currently active. A smaller application called CPU Meter 95 is also supplied, allows you to keep tabs on processor usage all the time."
Here are some excerpts from the March 1996 issue of PC Today Magazine...
"...we recommend it without reservation..."
"Many utilities packages attempt to do too much, so it's refreshing whever a program does one thing extraordinarily well. This is the case with BonAmi's Performance '95 While it is limited in scope, users will definitely appreciate it, particularly those that require accurate and detailed information..."
"...Performance '95 is very accurate."
"Of course, the first thing that users will notice about Performance is the excellent user interface, which shines particularly when compared to older utilities. The information screen is well designed, and the toolbar includes most important functions. Though the online documentation is good, BonAmi didn't skimp on the written manual, including detailed descriptions of how the program works."
"Performance '95 is easy to use and works well...we recommend it without reservation..."
