The following steps will explain how to use Performance Monitor to determine the amount of memory being used during the report analysis.

  2. Open Performance Monitor (it can be opened by typing perfmon.exe from the command line).

  3. Under Performance Logs and Alerts, select counter logs.

  4. In the right panel, right-click and select New Log settings.

  5. Assign (type) the name of the new log.

  6. Select add counter.

  7. Select the following:

    • The computer running Firewall Suite

    • Performance Object: Process

    • Counter as Private Bytes

    • Instance as runevent.exe
