Mem usage

I have a program on a remote NT box that I must monitor.  I do not have physical access to the box.  I can telnet into it and have limited privileges to the drive that it runs from.  What I need to do is check its resources, particularly its mem usage.  Can I do this from the command prompt or do I need to write a command based utility.  If the utility is the way to go then what is the API call.

Thanks In advance

BTW: This tool allows to do that from a remote machine (using 'HKEY_PERFORMANCE_DATA' remotely), so you don't even have to telnet to the other box...
