Process to Named Instance

When working with programs that spawn multiple processes (i.e. BizTalk, svchost, etc), sometimes you just need to know which one of the processes is actually spinning at 100% CPU or eating all your memory. ¬†Unfortunately, task manager doesn’t really give you and details about which process it is.

In order to get the details, you need to run the following (example is for svchost)

tasklist /SVC /fi “imagename eq svchost.exe”

Just remember to open the command prompt as administrator for elevated processes.
