When I view task manager processes I can see the w3wp.exe for each application pool but I can't tell which is which. I want to see which app pools are using the memory. I can run appcmd.exe and it gives me a WP number but I can't associate that with the w3wp.exe process either. How can I find out which w3wp.exe belongs to which website?

jamesh1031,

The easiest way I have found is to use the Process Explorer tool from Microsoft/SysInternals.  Select a w3wp process from the process list, and under the Image tab, look at the command line field.  The last argument on the line (-ap) will have your application pool name in quotes.  You can get the Process Explorer tool from http://live.sysinternals.com.  The executable is called procexp.exe.

Best of luck,
harperse

In full agreement with the method. But wanted to note that Windows 2008 can include the Command Line in Task Manager as a column (View / Select Columns).
