Default Alternative to activity monitor

Can anyone suggest a good alternative(s) to activity monitor for checking a system's CPU usage/RAM usage/disk traffic? I'm trying to troubleshoot a particularly problematic home studio setup and am having difficulty getting a good picture of what's going on from activity monitor alone.

Uses the activity monitor data and presents it an another way. It is a useful tool to have for diagnosing CPU and RAM utilization.

Hope this helps.
