Resource Monitor displays real-time information about all of the processes running on your system. If you want to view only the data related to selected processes, you can filter the detailed results.

To filter data by one or more processes
  1. To start Resource Monitor, click Start, click in the Start Search box, type resmon.exe, and then press ENTER.

  2. In the key table of any Resource Monitor tab, in the Image column, select the check box next to the name of each process you want to monitor. Selected processes are moved to the top of the column.

  3. If detailed results are not visible, click the title bar of the detail table to expand the table.


    After you have selected at least one process for filtering, the Associated Handles and Associated Modules tables on the CPU tab will contain data related to your selection.

  4. Filtering applies to all tabs. To see additional resource usage data for your selection, you can click another tab. Tables that contain only filtered results include an orange information bar below the title bar of the table.


    If the selected process is not using any of the resources displayed on the current tab, the process name will not appear in the key table. To make changes to your selection, return to the original tab.

  5. To stop filtering for a single process or service, clear its check box. To stop filtering altogether, in the key table, clear the check box next to Image.
