Process Status Monitoring

In order to add a process status counter, press the 'Add' button located on the main toolbar, selected the 'Process Status' counters category in the left-side view, select an appropriate process status counter in the middle view and then select the required process to monitor in the right-side view. In addition, in order to monitor the process status in a remote computer via the network, press the 'Connect' button located in the bottom-left corner and specify the host name of the remote computer to monitor.

SysGauge Process Status Monitoring
  • Process CPU Usage - this counter shows the percentage of elapsed time that all threads of the selected process used the processor to execution instructions. An instruction is the basic unit of execution in a computer, a thread is the object that executes instructions, and a process is the object created when a program is run.
  • Process CPU Usage User - this counter shows the percentage of elapsed time that all threads of the selected process spent executing code in the user mode. Applications, environment subsystems, and integral subsystems execute in user mode. Code executing in user mode cannot damage the integrity of the Windows executive, kernel, and device drivers.
  • Process CPU Usage System - this counter shows the percentage of elapsed time that all threads of the selected process spent executing code in the system privileged mode.
  • Process Memory Used - this counter shows the amount of the system memory in Megabytes used by the selected process.
  • Process Handle Count - this counter displays the total number of handles currently open in the selected process. This number is equal to the sum of the handles currently open in each thread of the selected process.
  • Process Thread Count - this counter displays the number of threads currently active in the selected process. An instruction is the basic unit of execution in a processor and a thread is the object that executes instructions. Every running process has at least one thread.
  • Process Control Rate - this counter measures the rate in Megabytes per second at which the selected process is issuing I/O operations that do not involve data such as control operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Control IOPS - this counter measures the rate in operations per second (IOPS) at which the selected process is issuing I/O operations that are neither read nor write operations (for example, a control function). This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Data Rate - this counter measures the data rate in Megabytes per second at which the selected process is reading and writing data in I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Data IOPS - this counter measures the rate in operations per second at which the selected process is issuing read and write I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Read Rate - this counter measures the data read rate in Megabytes per second at which the selected process is reading data in I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Read IOPS - this counter measures the data read rate in operations per second at which the selected process is issuing read I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Write Rate - this counter measures the data write rate in Megabytes per second at which the selected process is writing data in I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
  • Process Write IOPS - this counter measures the data write rate in operations per second at which the selected process is issuing write I/O operations. This counter measures all I/O activity generated by the process including file, network and device I/Os.
