CPU / Memory notifications with top-10 lists

When reciving notification on high cpu or memory usage, it would be very nice if the notification could include a top-10 list of cpu or memory consuming processes.

If it only peaks for a while you have no idea of what had trigged the alert afterwards.

What are your thoughts on this? CPU/memory notifications will be much more valuable if this was included. Today we mostly just delete this notifications because the values are not exceeded any more.

Perhaps it could also be possible to adjust memory notifications to "for X minutes" like CPU notifications.

Hi Martin,


This may happen if your performance counters are corrupt. Run the following command in an administrative command line and then restart the system to apply the changes:

lodctr /r
