I spent a good amount of time today trying to organize and create an AIR application that would:
1) Read the number of CORES in an operating system
2) Fetch me the usages of each of those Core’s activities.
Try google searching “AS3 library to get CPU OS Core Count and activity” or any lines upon there, you won’t get much. A lot is about the new Flex 4 profiler panel instead.
No such API exists in AS3 =(
Wish list for AIR2
2) flash.system.System.getCoreActivity( coreNumber:int );
Testing with AIR 2, there will be a work around with the NativeProcess API
