can be a very useful tool for identifying malware that might be running on your system. Or you can come down here and click on Properties, in which case the properties of the executable file that was used to launch that application is displayed. Go ahead and click Cancel. High-detail View 3:00-3:31 Notice down here there's an option called More details and frankly, that's the option that I usually usewith Task Manger. The low-detail view that we're looking at right now is really designed mostly for the end-user, while the high-detail view is what's used by system administrators. And that's where we're gonna spend most of our time in this demonstration. Notice that when we access the high-detail view, several different tabs are displayed. We have Processes, Performance, App history, Startup, Users, Detail, and Services. Processes 3:32-6:57 Let's start with the Processes tab. Remember when we were looking at the low-detail view, we saw that Microsoft Edge web browser and Notepad were both listed as running applications on the system. When we switch to the high-detail view, on the Processes tab we see those applications as well, but we also see a lot of other things that are running on the system that we did not see in the low-detail view. For example, we see the Task Manager application itself, which is providing this interface. And we also see a whole bunch of background processes that are running on the system as well. If we scroll down, we also see Windows processes that are also running on the system. We didn't see that in the low-detail view. For each process or application running on the system you can view summary statistics about that particular application or process such as its name, its current status. You can view CPU utilization statistics for that application. As you can see here, Notepad is currentlynot doing anything so its CPU utilization is zero. You can see how much physical memory the application is currently using. You can see that Notepad is using less than one megabyte of system memory. You can also see how much disk I/O that particular application or process is using. In this case, Notepad is neither writing to nor reading from the hard-disk drive and so zero is listed over here. And if the application is communicating with another host over the network, then you'll be able to also view how much network I/O that processor application is using. Now, Notepad does not communicate with other systems over the network, so it currently uses zero megabytes of network I/O. Now you'll also notice up at the top of each column, you can view system-wide statistics for each of these different columns. Notice that our CPU utilization overall is bouncing between three and twenty percent. That's very normal. Currently, 33% of our physical system RAM is in use by processes running on the system. Right now, not a whole lot's going on with the hard-disk drive. No processes are writing to or reading from the disk. And likewise, no processes or applications are communicating with other hosts over the network connection. Now, you'll notice in the high- detail view of Task Manager that several of the same options that we saw in the low-detail view are also available. For example, the End task

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
