Hi,

I have a server running Windows 2000 SP4. It's used as a application server, in Terminal Server mode. I was looking for a tool to "log" users process. What I want to acheive, is monitor the size of a process over a certain period of time.

My goal is to watch the growth of our home application, to know whether or not it gains a couple of MB per year. Assume that I have 50 users, if all process grows in aveverage of 5-6MB/year, I'd need extra memory on the server to accomodate the extra load.

The tool or the solution dosen't need to be automated, I could do it manually every couple days and manualy paste the information in a text file that I could manipulate later on. It needs to monitor the process name (i.e. soft.exe) along with it's memory size (i.e. : 35MB) ...

Any solution that could acheive such a thing is welcome.

You can use Performance, from Administrative tools. Create a new counter log, then you can add a counter for the "Terminal Services Session" Performance Object, and select the apropriate counters from the list, use the Explain button for a short explanation of the counter.
For example you can use "Page File Bytes Peak" to measure the maximum number of bytes used in the paging file.
And you should measure the counter for all the instances (all the RDP connections)

Sadly this dosen't acheive what I wanted. All I need is the data from the process windows transfered into a text file, all that automaticly if possible.
