Sysinternals Live: Launch troubleshooting tools from a browser

Sysinternals Live: Launch troubleshooting tools from a browser

  • Comments 3

We've written about Process Monitor a few times in the past month, and if you've ever had to troubleshoot a SoftGrid sequencing issue then you know how valuable tools such as Process Monitor, File Monitor and Registry Monitor are, and now with Sysinternals Live you can launch them directly from any Internet connected web browser.  To use the tools, simply enter a tool’s Sysinternals Live path into Windows Explorer or a command prompt as \\live.sysinternals.com\tools\<toolname> or view the entire Sysinternals Live tools directory in a browser at http://live.sysinternals.com.

For example, you can run Process Explorer simply by entering this URL:

http://live.sysinternals.com/procexp.exe

Same goes for the venerable favorites such as Regmon and Filemon:

http://live.sysinternals.com/regmon.exe

http://live.sysinternals.com/filemon.exe

For more information see http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/default.aspx.

Computerworld also has a nice write-up at http://www.computerworld.com/action/article.do?command=viewArticleBasic&articleId=9090778&intsrc=news_ts_head.

Enjoy!

  • I haven't had to try this yet, but if my theoretical thinking is right should I be able to use these tools while sequencing & they wouldn't be captured because I already exclude web traffic?

  • When you click on the Processmon link in the blog entry, it's just a link to the Processmon executable.

    Basically it's a download link to the program.  Why is this helpful?
