How do I detect a network process that runs every hour

By modata ·
I am looking for a free program that will allow me to pin point what process that runs every hour from one server to another. We have a network sniffer which has told us what servers but we need to know exactly what is running. We are using a wan microwave link between our (2) locations and the process is slowing connectivity and processes across the link.
Can anyone suggest a free or semi-cheap solution to identify the program which is in question?

Hopefully...

If they are windows servers you can open a command prompt and type in "netstat -b" without the quotes of course and it will list each network connection and which process/application owns the traffic on the port.

Assuming this is a Windows box

Windows Process Monitor works well.

And, although there is risk of killing the server if you're not careful, ps tools will let you monitor, kill processes.

The tools included in the PsTools suite, which are downloadable as a package, are:

PsExec - execute processes remotely
PsFile - shows files opened remotely
PsGetSid - display the SID of a computer or a user
PsInfo - list information about a system
PsKill - kill processes by name or process ID
PsList - list detailed information about processes
PsLoggedOn - see who's logged on locally and via resource sharing (full source is included)
PsLogList - dump event log records
PsPasswd - changes account passwords
PsService - view and control services
PsShutdown - shuts down and optionally reboots a computer
PsSuspend - suspends processes
PsUptime - shows you how long a system has been running since its last reboot (PsUptime's functionality has been incorporated into PsInfo)

That's a neat app. That would be useful for any user who suspects that malware is phoning-home on their PC.
