Monitor file system activity UNIX
Hard drive thrashing and you don't know why? Just curious to see what apps are doing to your hard disk behind your back? Give yourself a wide terminal window and type:
sudo fs_usage
You will get a running display of file system access. As always, "man fs_usage" for more info. This and other tools can be found in /usr/bin.
