ProcessGetStats and "system" process

Recommended Posts

Hello !

Today I wanted a script which can give me the I/O of the "system" process. Its PID is always 4 and when I play a game, this process write (but never read) on the disk.
ProcessGetStats works for the I/O of the game but always set @error for the "system" process ... Why ?

I tried with "4", "system", "system.exe" (with is not its real name) and always error ...

Does anyone know how to do it ? I don't want to use WMI because I need all my memory for a dedicated server ...

My little script : 

HotKeySet("q", "quitter")

   Local $StatsSystem = ProcessGetStats("system", 1)
   If Not @error Then
      ConsoleWrite($StatsSystem[3] & " " & $StatsSystem[4] & " " & $StatsSystem[5] & @CRLF)
      ConsoleWrite("Erreur" & @CRLF)

Func quitter()

Thanks !

The system process runs in Session 0, which is normally isolated from the normal user Session which would be session 1 or above. As a safety feature, session 0 processes can't be access from another session without bypassing this isolation protocol.I leave it to you to figure out how to do that, as it is a security breach in Windows because then you can cause all sorts of mayhem on a system.

If I posted any code, assume that code was written using the latest release version unless stated otherwise. Also, if it doesn't work on XP I can't help with that because I don't have access to XP, and I'm not going to.

I hereby grant any person the right to use any code I post, that I am the original author of, on the autoitscript.com forums, unless I've specifically stated otherwise in the code or the thread post. If you do use my code all I ask, as a courtesy, is to make note of where you got it from.
