Retreiving memory usage using WMI


I want to write an VB / .Net application using WMI that would retreive me the memory usage and the cpu usage of a given process at a given point of time.

I tried many WMI classes like Win32_Process, Win32_OperatingSystem etc but was not able to get a solution.

Can anyone help me in this?

Thanks In Advance
