I am using OSX 10.10.5 with activity monitor 10.10.0. Mac newbie.

In the memory tab, all the processes under chrome is scattered. I just want to know to how much of the resource is used by chrome all together. Is there a better app that will do it?

Basically, I want to see the resources used by all the apps that I using (seen on the side dock) grouped under the name of the apps.

I know this is old, but this feature does exist: Go to Activity Monitor, click "View" (at the top) and select "All Processes, Hierarchically".

group processes Hierarchically

Hope this helps someone!

    Unfortunately even when in this grouped, it doesn't show sum of memory used by all sub threads
