Process Viewer & Performance Monitor

Tip -Process Viewer & Performance Monitor, Windows Utility

Details -With the PView process viewer (PVIEW.EXE), you can examine and modify many characteristics of the processes and threads running on your system.

Using this tool we will get the solution for the below  questions:
    * How much memory does the program allocate at various points in its execution, and how much memory is being paged out?
    * Which processes and threads are using the most CPU time?
    * How does the program run at different system priorities?

 To start PView
   1. Click the Start button on the Windows taskbar and highlight Programs.
   2. On the resulting Programs submenu, highlight Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0.
   3. Next, highlight Microsoft Visual C++ 6.0 Tools then click Process Viewer.  PView opens by displaying the main Process Viewer Application dialog box.
