How to log memory of a particular process in to a file at regular interval say for every 10 seconds

Hello,

I need to get the memory graph of a process for 24 hours run of that.

In Windows XP, i have written a batch file using tasklist command.

How can i do that in Windows 2000 as tasklist is not available.

Thanks in advance

From memory click on the + icon, choose Process (not Processor etc.) from the drop down box. Below that you can choose which counter you want to choose, e.g. I think there is something like Allocated Bytes.  To the right of that you then have a list that says "instances" which you can select with a radio button "all instances" or "selected".  Choose selected which defaults to _total.  You can then choose the specific process or processses you are interested in by control clicking.

Have a go and come back if you need more info, not on a 2000 box to check above is exactly right at the moment.

Try it out is "system monitor" then you could go into the log option and add the same counters to a log to run every 10 secs as you requested.

Peformance monitor should do it.  Hit the + button in system monitor to add a counter and look under the "Process" counter and log the various memory related counters, you can select the process from the "instance" list.

If this gives you what you need leave it running for 24hrs or set a pefromance log going to a file.
