Performance Monitoring using Process explorer RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a multicore processor, and have lots of RAM. Upon start of the application the RAM utilization is maxed out; only a single core of an eight core is used, and the application takes a while to complete.

    How would I use Process Explorer (or minitor) to track how the application is utilizing RAM, and processor usage?

  • If you intend to use Process Monitor, version 3.05 can be downloaded, unziped and run (it doesn’t need installing), from here http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896645.aspx 

    Because of the huge number of activities, it can be made easier to understand by de-selecting some of the activities. The activities can be toggled on/off by clicking them on the right-hand side of the Toolbar, they are Registry, File, Networking, Processes/Threads and Profiling. Also, click Autoscroll on the Toolbar to see the current real-time events.
