    Track cpu usage of "only" active processes?


    Is there a way to track cpu usage of processes only as they are active, with performance monitor perhaps, instead of manually adding processes to monitor? I want to get a general idea of what processes are using cpu time and when.

    I use Process Hacker (extended process monitor by MS), which let you tag CPU usage monitor to desktop.
    Performance window of each process will show you history of the last 3 minutes. It is pretty basic though.

    Anvir task manager offers this, but just 1 process at a time, up to 1 week apparently.

    Grab your copy of "SysEssentials" here:

    Sysinternals Suite

    It includes "Process Monitor".

    I recently downloaded Process Hacker but haven't used it too much yet as I have Process Explorer as well. How do you bring that monitor window up? Does it show all processes that may have used the cpu in that timeline?

    I also have Process Monitor but haven't used it much yet. Can it achieve what I'm looking to do?

    Do you have to choose which process to monitor with this? I'm more interested in seeing what processes are being used over a timeline rather than having to guess what they are by adding them to monitor in performance monitor for example.

    Move mouse over its tray icon and it will popup, then you can use pin to lock it.

    No, it only shows processes by the current usage, you can check System Information window for CPU history.

    Process Monitor is a very comprehensive tool! Just give it a try, tweak with the view settings and it may be the tool you need!
