Kiwi is a useful application monitoring software that monitors applications or processes in your computer, records data about them and creates alerts according to pre-defined triggers. It also shows Windows runtime, user activity and computer information. The program always sits on the system tray in a small green icon.
When you start this tool, you will get a welcome screen as shown in screenshot below. You can add applications to monitor by clicking on “Add” button on the top navigation bar. The added programs will appear on the left sidebar. You may add as many processes as you want.

To add new application you can browse for .exe files (you can find it on C:\Program Files folder) or you could click on Process explorer button to see the list of running processes. You can also double click on any running application to add it in the monitored application list.
Don’t forget to check the boxes under basic rules tab which contains certain pre-defined conditions. It can alert you if the program running time exceeds certain time interval or application memory load exceeds the defined load level. You can also set actions like close the program or turn off the computer after specified time.
