In an organization's network, there might be several applications and processes that are scheduled to run around the clock. IT administrators have to monitor these tasks and processes to meet compliance requirements,, keep a track of memory consumption, take appropriate action such as terminate or restart a process, and so on. However, manually auditing the numerous processes spread across servers is quite an impossible feat. Built-in tools such as Windows PowerShell or real-time Active Directory auditing tools like ADAudit Plus can ease this task.
The following is a comparison between the procedures for monitoring real-time processes in Active Directory with Windows PowerShell and ADAudit Plus.
The following script monitors the desired process real-time and generates the report. In the following example, Calculator application has been monitored.
$ProcessName = 'Calculator' Get-Process -Name $ProcessName Out-File -FilePath C:\Windows\Logs\Report.csv
(Mention the location where report needs to be saved)
Other applications, processes or scheduled tasks can be monitored real-time by entering the appropriate process name and executing the PowerShell script.
The report can be fetched in HTML or TXT format by altering the same.
In addition to monitoring the processes that have been newly created, the following are some of the other reports generated by ADAudit Plus:
Following are the limitations to obtain report on real-time process monitoring using native tools like Windows PowerShell:
ADAudit Plus automatically scans all DCs in the domain to retrieve information about scheduled tasks and processes, generate the reports in real time, and present it in a simple and intuitively designed UI.
