Mark Russinovich at www.sysinternals.com has released freeware utility pslist which allows you to display process and thread stats from the local or remote NT boxes. NTs equivalent for the unix ps command which groped around the unix kernel to return process information. NT Resource Kit delivers similar utilites which work only on the local system. Useful to Windows NT admin.

The default behavior of PsList is to show CPU-oriented information for all the processes that are currently running on the local system. The information listed for each process includes the time the process has executed, the amount of time the process has executed in kernel and user modes, and the amount of physical memory that the OS has assigned the process. Command-line switches allow you to view memory-oriented process information, thread statistics, or all three types of data.

A utility for your NT Tool box.
