Now, these are the default columns. There are other columns you can add. In fact, there are a lot of other columns you can add depending upon what your troubleshooting needs are. You right-click on the column heading, such as Name, and then click on Select columns. You can see a list of all the other column that you can add. For example, one thing you might notice being missing from the default columns is information about disk utilization. So if I want to see how much disk I/O is being consumed by each process, in terms ofhow much data they've written, as well as how much data they have read from the hard-disk drive, I can mark I/O read bytes and I/O write bytes. Click OK, and then those columns are added to thedisplay. So now we can see how much data is being read from and written to the hard-disk drive by each of these different processes. Just as on the Processes tab, I can also kill a process. For example, we have the Microsoft Edge browser currently running. If I click on its process on the Details tab, I can come down here and click End task, and when I do, the Edge browser disappears. This process is killed. Go ahead and launch Notepad again. And notice when I do, a process is added for the Notepad application that's currently running. One of the things you can do in the Details tab that you cannot do on the Processes tab, is to first of all set the priority of the process. Notice right here that it's by default set to Normal, which means it's not considered any more important than any other process running on the system. But, if you have a process that is more important than the other processes running on the system, you can actually increase its priority by setting it to it to Above normal, High, or even to Realtime. For example, maybe I have a video-editing process running on my system and I want to reserve more CPU time for that video-editing process while it's rendering a video clip. To do this, I'd come into the Details tab, select its process and then maybe set its priority to Above normal. Change priority, and now, that process has a little bit better access to the CPU, a higher level of priority than the other processes running on the system. You can also set the affinity for that process, by clicking Set affinity. This will specify which processoryou want this process to run on. Notice that by default, it's set to Run on all processors. But, however, if you want the process to run on just one particular processor, so you want this to run just on CPU one, I could mark it here and click okay. And now it will not run on CPU zero. Services tabs 16:54-18:44 The last thing we're going to look at in this demonstration is the Services tab. Now, the Services tab allows you to manage the various services that are running on the system.

    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.
