Need process user name info

7 posts in this topic

I've been asked to write script that will monitor specific processes and notify someone when one or more of the processes goes down. All the processes have the same name so I'm collecting the PID using ProcessGetStats and _ProcessGetName. This works great. Now that I'm able to monitor the processes I've been asked to add into the information provided the user name that the process was running under. Each process is running under its own special user name. In the task manager the processes look something like this:

Image Name User Name CPU Mem Usage

w3wp.exe ETPTL1 00 350,764 K

w3wp.exe ETPTL3 00 415,264 K

w3wp.exe ETPTL0 00 123,232 K

w3wp.exe ETPTL5 00 239,293 K

and so on, up to about 30 different user ID's to run each process.

Does anyone know of a way to get the User Name information? This is the only way I can figure to identify which process died. Each User Name is tied to a specific site and will recycle and start back up with in about 60 seconds. So finding out which process and site went down is what I'm trying to record.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

GW

Here's a simple example using WMI. There's prob better ways (dll call) but this is what I've got to contribute.

Func _ProcessOwner($pid=0,$hostname=".")
    $objWMIService = ObjGet("winmgmts://" & $hostname & "/root/cimv2")
    $colProcess = $objWMIService.ExecQuery("Select * from Win32_Process Where ProcessID ='" & $pid & "'")
    For $objProcess In $colProcess
        If $objProcess.ProcessID = $pid Then
            $usr = 0
            $objProcess.GetOwner($usr) 
            Return $usr
        EndIf
    Next
EndFunc

Thank you for providing the code. This is much more advanced than I am capable of right now but there's only one way to learn, right? I'll work with it and see if I can get it to provide the information I need. Thanks again.

Got it working without too much trouble.

Thanks! This is going to work great.

There is a function already completed in Example Scripts called _ProcessListProperties().

The bird that wrote it is really good-looking, so it must work.

:D

Yea, looks good even though penguins don't fly. :D couldn't resist the bird pun.

GW, Psalty's code provides additional process information. Maybe overkill for what you need, but still neat and useful. Perhaps just the Owner func will work in your case, as my code uses the same mechanisms (WMI), but I recommend learning from his code too....The Error handler (COM) can be particularly useful if you anticipate performing functions the, "might fail."

GREAT! I'll check that out as there is more information that we could use if we had access to it. Maybe that code will help get what we need. I really appreceate all the help. I really like the power of AutoIT and the help on this Forum is really great. I recently went through a college Java course and was a member of several Java forums. I must say that the help and lack of flaming here in the AutoIT forum is one of the reasons I enjoy this application so much. I was bombarded by flames by many of the Java developers, though a few were very helpful. I'm an old structured C/C++ programmer (haven't touched it in better than 10 years though) so I fell right into AutoIT without any problem, unlike Java. That visual programming method just doesn't work for me at all. I did pass my course with a "B" so I guess I didn't do too bad. The really funny part is that the instructor had never done any programming in a structured language before. She continually made comments about how visual programming could do this or that but the same could not be done in structured programming. I'm talking about simple things like functions and using modular design and such. I'll stick with AutoIT. To date it has done just about everything I've needed it to do. Now if someone can write up a library that will interface to MS SharePoint, then I'd be on cloud nine!

Thanks again for all the help. I haven't work with AutoIT for about a year now so I'm just getting back into it, and enjoying its simple but powerful capabilities. I just need more practice so I can learn more about the code provided, how it works and all. Again, greatly apprceated.
