Measure memory and programs

Hi all.

I would like to ask if there is a way to measure how much memory is being used by a program.

Specifically i would like to measurethe program called fences.

I try using task manager but i cant find fences nowhere although it is running.

I would be much obliged if you could point me out a good way to measure progs and the memory they use.

Thank you in advance and excuse my lame English.

Regards,
theobserver

There are two built into windows. Performance monitor, and task manager (if you have the show all checked). If you want something more comprehensive there is an app called process explorer.

Let us know if you need help

Hi and thank you for answer my question.

Although i have used both the programs you pointed me out , unfortunately i have not managed to find "fences" in any of them ,and the software is definitely running.

Can you advice me what i am doing wrong or what else i could do ?

much obliged ,

Hi, theobserver.

You should be able to navigate to the Task Manager and find the process for Fences. It should display how much memory it is using. Or is this not what you're asking for?

Thanks,

Yes this is exactly what i am asking.
I am able to navigate in Task Manager but there is no process regarding fences although the program is running ...
So i ask what i do wrong cause this is very strange. Isn't it ?

It is most likely in task manager, but has a weird name.
