ProcessPerformance: A portable and easy-to-use tool to measure resource consumption of running processes


The measurement of the resources consumed by an application at runtime is an important task in different scenarios such as program optimization, malware and bug detection, and hardware scaling. Although different tools exist for this purpose, they sometimes show some limitations such as operating system and hardware dependencies, performance overhead, and usage complexity. For this reason, we create ProcessPerformance, a portable and easy-to-use command-line tool that provides information about the CPU, memory, and network resources consumed by any combination of running processes. It also avoids the performance overhead caused by software and binary code injection.
