CPU Usage of processes

Last Modified: 2010-04-05
I have had a good look around EE to little success in finding code to determine the percentage CPU usage (and RAM) for any given process.

What i want is code that would allow me to specify a PID at any given time and then be returned with the percentage CPU usage and if possible (in another function) RAM usage.

I am not interested in code to determine the total CPU usage as i already can do this.

i think you can do it by enumerating processes using NtQuerySystemInformation. although this is undocumented there is a lot of code on the net, M$ might have even made a new API for this for XP SP1+ systems
