Resource Monitor (Resmon)

Definition - What does Resource Monitor (Resmon) mean?

Resource Monitor (Resmon) is a system application included in Windows Vista and later versions of Windows that allows users to look at the presence and allocation of resources on a computer. This application allows administrators and other users determine how system resources are being used by a particular hardware setup.

Techopedia explains Resource Monitor (Resmon)

Resource Monitor is found in the Task Manager under the "Performance" tab. It can also be found by typing "resmon" into the Windows search box. Users can see a dashboard showing the presence and usage of resources such as the CPU, disk and memory. These are broken down by process, with a description and status, along with a visual graph of a particular resource, showing its usage and activity. This graph makes it easier for those managing a system to make changes or analyze how allocation is affecting performance.
