Include the Process ID Column on the Task Manager’s Processes Tab

The default arrangement of columns on the Processes tab does not include the Process Identifier (PID) column. This column is shown on the Services tab, where it’s extremely useful in enabling you to see which processes are running as part of the same Svchost.exe instance.
However, for detailed troubleshooting and performance analysis, we recommend that you display the Process ID column on the Processes tab. To find out what’s inside a particularly busy Svchost process, make a note of its PID and then switch to the Services tab and sort by the PID column. The associated services will appear in a block using that PID.
