What is the vbscript command for memory usage? I presume its something like memusage.vbs. I have a batch file that collects the iis process id's on a web server and writes to a text file. I need memory usage of each process to identify which is causing a problem.

You can use WMI to get a peek into memory usage stats. See sample below. For a more extensive sample go to:

http://www.activexperts.com/admin/scripts/wmi/vbscript/0191/

Set objWMIService = GetObject("winmgmts:\\.\root\CIMV2")
Set colItems = objWMIService.ExecQuery("SELECT * FROM Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Memory") 

strLinePercentCommittedBytesInUse = ""
For Each objItem In colItems 
	strLinePercentCommittedBytesInUse = strLinePercentCommittedBytesInUse & " " & objItem.PercentCommittedBytesInUse
Next

WScript.Echo "Used Mem % =" & strLinePercentCommittedBytesInUse

You could also use the System.Diagnostics object:

        Dim CpuInfo As System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter
        Dim MemInfo As System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter

        Dim Cpu As Single
        Dim Mem As Single

        CpuInfo = New System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter()
        CpuInfo.CategoryName = "Processor"
        CpuInfo.CounterName = "% Processor Time"
        CpuInfo.InstanceName = "_Total"

        MemInfo = New System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter("Memory", "Available MBytes")

        Cpu = CpuInfo.NextValue
        Mem = MemInfo.NextValue

==> ScottsdaleJay,

I don't think that will work as a VBS script, will it?
