Open the Processes drilldown for a Windows Server connection

The Processes grid shows information for each process running on the Windows server. To view detailed information about a process, select that process in the grid.

The columns of the Processes grid are:

Process Name

The image name of the application itself. This can be used as a parameter in system programs, such as the TASKKILL.EXE command on Windows systems.

PID

The Process ID. This is individual for all currently running processes across the system. This can be used as a parameter in system programs, such as the TASKKILL.EXE command on Windows systems.

%CPU

The percentage of CPU time that the program is currently consuming. This is an instantaneous result.

Mem Usage

The current size of the working set of the process.

VM Size

The current memory allocated to this process that cannot be shared with other processes.

Elapsed time

How long it has been since the program was started.

Handles

The overall number of resources that the program currently has open. A handle is a value used to uniquely identify a resource so that a program can access it.

Page Faults

An instantaneous view of how many page faults are occurring for the program.

IO

The number of I/O accesses (such as hard disk reads and writes and memory reads and writes) being performed by the process.

User

The percentage of CPU time that the program is currently consuming in user mode. (User mode is a restricted processing mode designed for applications, environment subsystems, and integral subsystems).

Address Space

The current size of the total address space of the process.

Note: A process is limited to 2GB of address space no matter how much free RAM may be available.

IO Data

The rate at which the process is reading and writing megabytes in all its I/O operations.

IO Other

The rate at which the process is issuing megabytes to I/O operations that do not involve data (control operations, for example).

IO Read

The rate at which the process is reading megabytes from I/O operations.
