Get Detailed System Information With Process Hacker For Windows RT
If you own a Surface or similar device running Windows RT and are reading this, chances are that you’ve already jailbroken it and are always on the lookout for useful ported apps to install. You may have been using some of those already ported by the development community, or even begun to port them for yourself. Either way, the selection of apps available to Surface owners is improving on a daily basis.
One of the latest traditional desktop apps to be ported across to RT is Process Hacker. It’s a tool for viewing detailed system information and interacting with the various tasks and processes running on the device at any given time. The RT port is currently still at a beta stage and doesn’t feature all the functionality of the desktop version. However, most of the functionality you would expect is there.
Some of the things that Process Hacker will allow you to do include:
- Display detailed info on resource usage in text/graph view,
- Display active network connections,
- Discover which processes are using a given file,
- View real time info on disk access.
If you’re interested in what’s going on with your RT device behind the scenes, this is well worth a look. Check out the original thread for more information.
