Windows Process Monitoring.




PRTG has specific sensor for moniroting Windows process via WMI, it calls "Windows Process Sensor", but can't show Memory Usage of selected Windows Process. Is there any other sensor which can show RAM Usage for selected process same way?

Thank you!

Hi Vasiliy,

We use the class Win32_PerfRawData_PerfProc_Process for monitoring processes as this works most reliable. Unfortunately, this class does not hold specific information about how much memory a process is using:

Best regards
