If you ever had to troubleshoot a problematic system you have surely used
Process Monitor from Sysinternals (now Microsoft). If not,shame on you!
Process Monitor is basically Task Manager on steroids and so much more. A new
version of this tool has just been released,and according to the Sysinternals
blog it sports the following features:
“This major update to Process Monitor adds real-time TCP and UDP monitoring to its existing process, thread, DLL, file system and registry monitoring. You can now see the TCP and UDP activity processes performed, including the operation (e.g. connect, send, receive), local and remote IP addresses and DNS names, and operation transfer lengths. On Windows Vista, Process Monitor also collects thread stacks for network operations.”
