Yet Another (remote) Process Monitor (YAPM) is a powerful application that allows to view and manage your running tasks, processes, threads, modules, windows, handles, network connections and your services on a local or on a remote machine. YAPM offers lots of features to manipulate them, such as privilege management, memory management, a complete history of statistics, a dependency viewer... etc.

It is the first and only open source software to offer all these features.

It's totally free and open source (GNU GPL 3.0).

You are also able to monitor all Windows perfmon counters (local or remote machine) with an advanced time scale. YAPM also can save advanced reports of your system (HTML or TXT files).

YAPM offers an user-friendly GUI with Microsoft Office Ribbon style, or a classical menu-based GUI if you don't like the Ribbon style :-) Main features

In addition to all basic features available with the standard Windows Task Manager, YAPM offers lots of other useful features:

  • Local and remote monitoring
  • Module and thread management
  • Handle management (keys, files...)
  • View of TCP/UDP connections opened by the processes
  • Windows management (opacity, position, show, hide...)
  • Window' find' process feature : allows to find the process associated to a window via a drag & drop over the screen
  • Emergency Hotkeys feature : allows to associate a custom shortcut to a custom action (for example : Ctrl+Shift+Suppr to close the window which is on foreground)
  • Privilege management : allows to view and modify the privileges of processes
  • Build-in hex editor to view memory of processes
  • "Log mode" to monitor all actions made by a specific process
  • Hidden Processes feature to detect basic rootkits
  • Local and remote shutdown
  • Dependency viewer
