PMon : PMon : NT Gui/device driver program that watches process and thread creation and deletion
PMon is a device driver/GUI combination which logs and displays all process activity on a Windows NT 4.0 system. The device driver uses several undocumented hooking functions that cause it to be called whenever a process or thread is created or deleted. In addition, if run on the Checked build of NT or the Multiprocessing kernel, an undocumented context-swap hook is installed that has PMon optionally display all context switch activity. PMon works on all builds of NT 4.0. Installing PMon is as easy as unzipping it and typing, "ntpmon." The GUI dynamically loads the driver (based on code from the instdrv sample in the Windows NT DDK), which installs hooks for process and thread creation and deletion. The menus can be used to disable event capturing, control the scrolling of the listview, and to save the listview contents to an ASCII file. Where possible, PMon displays the name of the process that owns a thread that is part of a thread creation or deletion, or a context swap. The thread ID immediately follows the process name. In some cases the owning process does not exist anymore, in which case PMon displays "???" for the name. The "Elapsed" column indicates the time in seconds between successive events in the display. Note that many times this will be 0, which simply means that the events happened inside of one system timer clock tick. Clock ticks are normally 10 milliseconds apart, so alot can happen.
