  1. PDH Performance Counters Measure Process, CPU, Network, Process, Disk (etc) Usage (note that the above dialog appears differently on Vista+) New ObjectBase interface!! *x64 and Localization Issues have been resolved!* *Download and License agreement are at the bottom of this post! About The Project: Performance Counters gather all kind of performance data about the PC and the Network using the standard PDH.DLL module (standard since Windows 2000). Among the performance data you can collect and monitor are: Processor Stats (including total usage)Process (programs) Stats (including CPU usage)Disk Stats (speed/access)TCP, UDP, IP Connection Counts, Speed/Error StatsNetwork Stats..and so onNote that one example is a WIP. 'TaskManager' mockup UDF, I'm looking at you. You can jump right in, download the two AutoIT files (below) and run one of the following to see what the PDH Performance Counters project can get you: TestPDH_PerformanceCounters - this is where you should start! It allows you to visually experiment with most all of the Counters available on your PC and Network. NOTES: - Currently the 'Refresh' rate is set to 1/2 second - this can be changed by altering the Adlib() function frequency - New Counters that come into existence during monitoring will *not* be added to the list (this would be a function I've yet to add) - Counters that become invalid are simply given a prefix of '[Dead Counter Handle]:' TestPDH_ProcessLoop - this basically repeatedly shows an extended Process-information list for all processes. NOTE: You must hit 'ESC' to exit the loop TestPDH_TaskManager - this gathers and displays most everything you'd see in the Process and Performance sections of Task Manager. NOTES: - The screen does NOT update, and the UDF is a MESS. This is due to a number of reasons - the biggest one being laziness on my behalf. Plus I need to figure out how best to manage ListView changes. - TWO fields need Windows XP+ to display correctly (or a version of psapi.dll that supports 'GetPerformanceInfo'): Commit Charge (Peak) and System Cache TestPDH_ProcessGetRelatives - this shows how the PDH Performance Counters can be used to get 'parent' and 'children' process information. There are more practical means of getting this info of course (a few you'll see in my 'Process Functions' module, but hey - its just yet another example of what can be done.TestPDH_ObjectTests - this is more for reading/understanding the code than anything. It is there to show how the new 'ObjectBase' Interface works to make coding Performance Counters *much* easier.Multipile extra 'TestPDH*' examplesAt its most basic, interacting with Performance Counters is as such: The brand new ObjectBase Interface removes some of the difficulty in interacting with Performance Counters, and works like this: Examples of the new ObjectBase interface: % CPU Usage of a Process % CPU Usage of Multiple Instances of a Process (+monitoring and adjustment based on new/dead Instances) Other Examples: Waiting for Hard Disk activity to Idle for 'x' ms % System CPU Usage (by Processor) Network Usage (bytes sent/received) I've put a LOT of work into this project, and all I ask is that you follow my License Agreement when using the code (very easy, see below). Any feedback is welcome. I apologize for the unpolished GUI interfaces (especially the unfinished one), but I will get to that TaskManager GUI one day, hah. Enough chatter -now go on and experience the awesome power of Performance Counters Download the ZIP Here NOTE: Bundled in the ZIP (and included in the License agreement) are other UDF's I wrote that are necessary to run some of the 'Test' programs:_WinAPI_GetSystemInfo.au3, _WinAPI_GetPerformanceInfo.au3, _WinTimeFunctions.au3, and the unnecessary, but provided for those who are interested in the _WinTimeFunctions 'filetime' usage, program: TestWinTimeFunctions.au3.

  2. Hey guys, I having some hard times getting false-positive, probably because I am trying to execute my AutoUpdater. Here is my code: Global $iUpdateTimer = 0 While 1 checkUpdates(10) WEnd Func checkUpdates($iDelay = 10) $iDelay = $iDelay * 1000 * 60 If TimerDiff($iUpdateTimer) > $iDelay Then ConsoleWrite('checking for updates...' & @CRLF) $iUpdateTimer = TimerInit() If FileExists('AutoUpdater.exe') Then ShellExecuteWait('AutoUpdater.exe') ; this is the line which cause my problem EndIf EndFunc And AutoUpdater code: #include <MsgBoxConstants.au3> #include <FileConstants.au3> Global $sExecName = 'test.exe' Global $sUpdatePath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\update\'& $sExecName Global $sUserPath = @UserProfileDir &'\desktop\AnyAppName\'& $sExecName Global $sCopyright = 'someUniqueStringHere' If Not FileExists($sUpdatePath) Then Exit 0 If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath, $FV_LEGALCOPYRIGHT) <> $sCopyright Then Exit 0 ; checking if we really want to update and execute the file If FileGetVersion($sUpdatePath) > FileGetVersion($sUserPath) Then $iResponse = MsgBox(BitOR($MB_YESNO, $MB_ICONQUESTION),'AnyAppName', 'There is an update available, would you like to update?') If $iResponse == $IDYES Then If ProcessExists($sExecName) Then ProcessClose($sExecName) Sleep(500) EndIf FileCopy($sUpdatePath, $sUserPath, $FC_OVERWRITE) Sleep(3000) ShellExecute($sUserPath) Exit 1 EndIf EndIf Exit 0 I am not trying to ask, why is my code is getting recognized as false-positive, because this is quite obvious, but is there any other way to get things done without running external process?
  3. hello autoit team is there any wey to check if any process run as admin or no? i mean e.g if i want to restart any process, now i have the ability to get the process path and commands line what i need is a wey to check if the process was runing as admin or no to restart it with the same state. here is the part that am using it to restart the process func _processRestart($i_pid, $s_ProcessPath) if not (ProcessExists($i_ProcessPid)) then return SetError(1, 0, -1) local $s_ProcessWorkDir = _WinAPI_GetProcessWorkingDirectory($i_ProcessPid) ProcessClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWaitClose($i_ProcessPid) ProcessWait(ShellExecute($i_pid,"", $s_ProcessWorkDir)) ProcessesGetList() return true endFunc thanks in advance
  4. I want to detect if exact process or window uses directx or opengl or maybe something else library used in applications. Thats becouse there could be many windows with same names and different names and the same with process. I got so much process names I want to my script works with all, so i want standardize. All of this processes uses DirectX or OpenGL so then If I check this window/process uses these libraries I will be sure thats the right process
  5. I'm trying to kill a malware process, that I can't remove with my www.sophus.com/hom antivirus. The malware is known as coinminer,config and my Sophus only creates popups of blocking the malware. I know that the malware is constantly launching a svchost *32.exe processes, where the svchost.exe processes are from my Windows 7 operating system. I have with no luck tried to do this: Global $_bStatus = False While $_bStatus = False Global $_iPid Global $_sActiveTitleNew = "svchost *32.exe" $_iPid = WinGetProcess($_sActiveTitleNew) If $_iPid <> -1 Then $_bStatus = ProcessClose($_iPid) Wend EXIT But the $_iPid doesn't ever show anything else than -1, even if I can see the svchost *32.exe process in my TaskManager YES - I know I shouldn't EXIT after killing the first malware detection, but it is easier to explain the above for you, so I can get a solution.
  6. Hello my friends I have an inquiry after your permission I found a function to get the special line commands for any operation It requires the name of the process to be searched I want to use it to know the process Is this possible with this function Here is the code Func commandLineGet($proc, $strComputer=".") dim $array[1] local $ArrayNumber local $oWMI = ObjGet("winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!\\" & $strComputer & "\root\cimv2") local $oProcessColl = $oWMI.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process where Name= " & '"'& $Proc & '"') local $Process For $Process In $oProcessColl $Process = $Process.Commandline ReDim $Array[UBound($Array)+1] $ArrayNumber = UBound($Array)-1 $array[$ArrayNumber] = $Process Next $ArrayNumber = UBound($Array)-1 $array[0] = $ArrayNumber return $array EndFunc
  7. Hi guys, It's been a while since I wrote my last message here and a while since I used AutoIt. I'm currently sort of desperate and I'm trying to find some help in regards of getting the network usage per process! I'm not interested in the total network usage of the NIC, but only on a specific PID's network utilization. They idea is to collect the amount of traffic uploaded and downloaded by a list of specific processes. So far Process Hacker and Process Explorer are capable of getting what I need, but I need to use these numbers in another script so they're sort of useless to me. I can't seem to find a way around it. Any idea, help is greatly appreciated. Thanks
  8. with the below code, I am keeping waiting for a particular file and waiting in the background. While $i <> 10 Sleep(60000) If FileExists(@ScriptDir&"\Binaries.ini") then --some processing-- $i = 10 endif WEnd I thought keeping the Sleep will freeze the process from resources but the CPU being uilized.But it is taking 47%. How to free this CPU usage also.?
  9. With ProcessList ( ["name"] ) we are able to get the running process list from the local machine. Is there anyway to get the list from Remote machine, more precisely to get to know the status whether a particular application is running or not on remote machine using AutoIT? We can implement through PSList.exe, but again we need to parse the text of it to read the output. Is there any direct UDF in AutoIT?
  10. If Process exits then end process and ;Some code here {1} If Process does not exits then ; My {1} Code
  11. How to retrieve the target executable path from a process. My system is effected with IMG001.exe virus and I remove the folders created by it daily but still it is creating the folders everytime I login to my PC. My Antivirus is not detecting it. So I thought to create a process in AutoIT to check for the process name IMG001.exe and retrieve the process target exe to a log file, so that I can track where it is putting these files. With ProcessExists ( "process" ) , i can get the process ID. But how to get the target location of the executable of the process.??
  12. Hey everyone i wanna close a process by path like C:\Users\salah\AppData\Local\Temp\a.exe processclose(C:\Users\salah\AppData\Local\Temp\a.exe) i tried to split the path but i don't know how to know last loop and thanks
  13. Hi! Looking for working code to get full path of process - both 32 & 64 bit. I tryed this bellow, but it works only for 32-bit processes, even if compiled for x64... Thanx for suggestions!

  15. Hi All, I run multiple AutoIT scripts concurrently, is there a way of distinguishing between them? When I look under Details in task manager I just see a bunch of "AutoIt3.exe" processes. Under the processes tab I again just see a bunch of "AutoIt v3 Script" or "AutoIt v3 Script (32 bit)" applications. When I hover my mouse over the tray icon I can see the tooltip "AutoIt - Current Time.au3" but am not sure how to reference this. For example if I run a script called "Current Time.au3", how can I determine from another au3 script if this "Current Time.au3" script is running and grab it's handle (using WinGetHandle() or similar)? Following from that l'd even like to pause/resume the script, if that's possible.. Cheers!
  16. I'm going to build a new function that I have been unable to find. PLEASE CORRECT ME. It will tweak the internal AutoIt functions giving me the ability to trash stuff I do not want to spin around. Get it? Please throw me whatever you got and I will put it togeather. Ship it now. My supersleep() will be in here somewhere. It's on another thread.
  17. Hello. I need a trick to make a process idle down less than sleep. I use onevents for almost everything, but the problem is the project I'm working on has almost 50 processes. Even at around 1% idle it adds up and there will be more processes added. What I'm looking to do is get to a C like idle of .03 to .08 cpu. Any tricks you have will be great and I will post the final code I use. I love AutoIt, but is does need a cooler name, lol. Thx.
  18. I have 3 processes that I am trying to work with: The ControlCenter (Cannot Edit) and handles the other 2 processes. The ControlCenter will launch and close processes as requested by the user. The Launcher (Can Edit) and launches an installer. The Script (Can Edit) and automates the above installer. My issue is, ControlCenter will terminate the Launcher and all of it's child processes. I need the script to continue running after the Launcher has been closed by the ControlCenter. How do I get the Launcher to launch the script in it's own parent process so it does not get terminated when the ControlCenter terminates the launcher and all child processes? Sorry if this is confusing. I am terrible at explaining things. Autism can be a pain to deal with sometimes.
  19. Hi guys I have a script that runs for about 20 seconds. If Outlook.exe is not already open, and I open it while the script is running, I want Outlook to wait until the script is done, and then open. Is it possible to set an application in some sort of idle state until the script is done? I want to avoid it from just closing Outlook, and open it again. Thanks David
  20. All I'm after is a script that will continuously check the time, and if a process starts before 5:00, then it will be killed straight away, if its after 5:00, then it is allowed to run. But on weekends the process is allowed to run at any time. A script that I could just modify to my needs would be nice, but if someone could point me to the Help File section that will do what I need, that would be better.
  21. How can I start the Window SHell Explorer after closing it with this: Run('TASKKILL /F /PID ' & ProcessExists('explorer.exe'))
  22. I want to restart a program, if the window or process closes, the program gets crashed and so on. I used Runwait in a While loop, that worked so far really good. Now I got the problem that Windows sometimes does show me this window http://i.stack.imgur.com/4bCtC.png it is not excatly that one but looks close to it. So I want to close that window immidiatly if it appears.
  23. Hi guys, i need to "hide" a process for "10 secounds " after show that up again , my process is "CMD.exe" , i used " echo off " but it doesn't hide ( go minimized , etc ). i want to do that , something like that : 1 ) run > cmd.exe 2 ) something write in cmd , like : ping google.com 3 ) when (2) is running , i don't like it was show , i want hide that ( or minimize ) 4 ) back to show after "10 sec" thanks,
  24. Hi, would there be a way to hide the Process Name in the Taskmanager and other programs which detects processes? or to Change the Name of the process but not of the exe~
  25. Hey people. I want to keep running a process executed by the main compiled script after I kill the process, using ProcessKill. The problem is that after killing the parent process, the children is also terminated. I tried using Run, ShellExecute (what I need to run are batch commands BTW). Anyway to prevent this behavior? All I can think of is creating a scheduled task to keep it alive after closing the main one, but it might be unreliable, depending on the system.
