When viewing the CPU Load on Activity Monitor today, I was curious as how to make Activity Monitor update the chart and data faster.

Is there a setting to change the update speed for Activity Monitor?


To change the update speed, open Activity Monitor and select View > Update Frequency.

You can choose between three options:

  • Very often (1 sec)
  • Often (2 sec)
  • Normal (5 sec)
