How can I calculate data usage per app on Windows 7?

Mohmmad Ayaz Shaikh December 4, 2012

I wanna know how to get data usage on Windows 7 by app and how to disable them if needed, although I use Norton 360 to block some apps using data! I need that data usage by app!

    Hello, performance monitor tools provided with windows 7 should be able to show you all that information you need. You just need to configure it to show the info you need.

    By data usage I'm guessing that you mean RAM so that's what this answer will do.
    Open the Performence Monitor application and click on the top of the column entitled memory, which will list running applications in order of how much memory that it using.

      Very good answer. In fact he doesn't need any special app to see which application is using a certain amount of memory. The built in windows monitor app is enough. Thanks Adam.

        he's not asking about memory usage......but about network usage.

          Got it. Why not try Netbalancer? The unregistered version is limited to a maximum of 3 process priorities/limits and 3 rules at a time but at least you still can see all your network traffic and decide whether to stop or not the one that you feel necessary.
          Grab it at
