PC Activity Monitor

12 Set/09

windows softwareAn activity monitor is a software program that can be used to record PC activity that includes running programs and processes on a computer system. The Windows Activity Monitor installs itself as a system service in the Windows operating system. The service will automatically record PC activity and generate reports that can be accessed with a web browser. Access to these information is available from the same computer system but also remotely which can be very helpful for parents to monitor the PC usage of their children. Other possible uses include running the activity monitor in an office or organization.

The PC activity monitor is configured over the web interface as well. Here it is possible to activate remote access, change the listening port, data retention and password protection. The reports are divided into tabs for easier access. Each report can be configured to show the activity on a specific range of days and by user to filter the results more effectively.

The statistics tab displays the last activity on the monitored computer system as well as the general use of applications in a pie chart. The timesheet tab on the other hand lists when applications where used on the computer system. Groups are helpful to add multiple applications to a single group, e.g. Internet programs or Office programs to get a better overview on first glance.

The last tab will list the running processes starting from the point of running the activity monitor. This usually means that no processes are listed after installation. The process list will however be filled with processes as the service (called wam in the service configuration) is configured to automatically start with Windows.

Windows Activity Monitor can be downloaded from the developer’s website.
