Monitoring process memory usage (Windows)



Can PRTG Network Monitor monitor and display memory usage for all processes individually? I am trying to figure out what's causing a sudden resource depletion on a Windows Server 2019 system, but the event only occurs on the weekend. I've tried PowerShell scripting to monitor the working set of each process but whatever is causing the "resource depletion event" also stopped my Scheduled Task, so I didn't get the data I need to identify what's causing the problem.

If PRTG can help me identify the problem process then I'll encourage my client to install it. Hopefully SNMP won't be stopped before I can get useful data.

PRTG can monitor defined processes with such details, you can use the Windows Process Sensor for this.
But PRTG can't monitor all processes resource usage simultaneously.

Kind regards,

Thanks for the reply. That's a little disappointing, but okay. I found another way to get the data I want using Windows' Performance Monitor, so I'm hoping that will prove up to the task.
