Remote Task Monitor lets you remotely monitor the processes and threads running on a WinCE device. This is achieved by running a very light process, cemon.exe, on the target device. Then the client program, rtmonitor.exe, runs on a PC with a TCP/IP link to the target device. You can watch the CPU and memory usage of threads and processes running on the target device. The client program on the PC lets you manage these processes and threads on the target, you can change thread priorities, suspend, resume and kill threads, kill and start processes. You can also log the session as a csv file.

There are two components, the server and the client. cemon.exe runs as the server on the target WinCE device. It has been tested on WinCE 5.1, 5.2 and 6.0 devices with ARM4 platform. The client program is rtmonitor.exe and runs on a PC (tested on WinXP and Win7). You need a network connection between the two, the rtmonitor.exe will connect to the IP address of cemon.exe target. Type the IP address in rtmonitor.exe and click the connect button.
