  1. Core Temp
  2. Cpu Temperature Monitor
  3. Sysinternals Cpu Temperature Controller

These two tools are among the top ten most common utilities i use for troubleshooting on different issues on Windows-based systems. One of them – the Reliability Monitor- a built-in tool/feature that comes with Windows.

Aside from just reading the temperature and humidity of the room, the sensor could also tell the HomePod Mini to launch other actions such as turning an internet-connected fan on or off. It is capable of displaying a temperature of each individual core of every processor in your system! You can see temperature fluctuations in real time with varying workloads. Core Temp is also motherboard agnostic. All major processor manufacturers have implemented a 'DTS' (D igital T hermal S ensor) in their products. Apr 23, 2021 Once installed, open Core Temp to see a no-frills look at the current state of your CPU, including an average temperature reading at the bottom of the window. If you want even more detail, click. The Intel Temperature Guide differs in its approach toward the topic of processor Core temperatures and cooling with respect to Intel's TDP specifications, and distinguishes between steady.

Another free tool you can use to check the temperature of the CPU on your Windows 10 PC is “Core Temp”. Here are the steps to download, install and use the app. Open link from any browser on your PC. Then, to download the latest version, click the Download link.

Reliability Monitor

Core temp

Reliability Monitor is a feature that has been around since Windows Vista / Windows Server 2008. It is a great tool that lets you know the system’s overall stability on a scale from 1 to 10 over a period of time. It also provides a decent graphical overview where you can switch views by days or even weeks, which will give you a better way to visualize when certain issues began.

You can even View technical details of a selected event. In this example we have a stimulated application crash by myself.

I often use this tool..

  • to get a general overview of system’s overall stability
  • when the customer isn’t sure when an issue occured – might be helpful at times
  • or when i’m trying to correlate different events which might be consequential faults, for instance: a recent Windows patch or driver install might be causing application X to crash etc.
  • along with Event Viewer

Run command to launch Reliability Monitor:

Even though ProcDump is primarly used to generate memory dumps for user mode processes during different conditions (crashes, CPU spikes, process hang, other conditions etc), it can be used to much broader than that. For instance – if the target application provides debug logging you can enable it to view the debug output of the target process.

You can also instruct the ProcDump to just display the exceptions, both first-chance exceptions and unhandled exceptions (second-chance).

ProcDump has the -l parameter which will cause it to display debugging of the process, and the -f with «» will make it to just display the exceptions.

Note: Filtering (-f/-fx) requires exception monitoring (-e) and/or debug logging (-l).

Trigger memory dump when a certain word or phrase occurs in the debug output.

Handle leak? :Trigger a memory dump when the handle count of process exceeds X.

Trigger full memory dump if the overall CPU utilization for the specified process exceeds 85 percent over a 10 second period.

Trigger a memory dump if the overall CPU utilization exceeds 95 percent over a 10 second period.

PS There will come posts about core / memory dump analysis in the future!
