    Default Is it possible to graph memory and CPU usage of Plugins?

    Hey everyone,

    I love Chrome's Task Manager - it makes it very easy for me to see how resource hungry my Flash apps become with use. I'm wondering if it's at all possible to somehow export or otherwise plot the data from the Task Manager.

    Ideally I would like to record the Memory and CPU numbers for "Plug-in: Shockwave Flash" so I can graph them to try and find out what kind of usage (or what length of usage) makes the flash app begin to consume too high amounts of Memory and CPU power.

    Thanks in advance!

    graphing ? No

    but you can try this;

    type "about:memory" into the url bar (without the quotation marks) and reload the page occasionally

    My thought was that since chrome assigns a PID to each process that it may be possible to pipe that PID out and dump its data into (for example) a text file at certain intervals.

    It's probably possible.. but this kind of data doesn't seem to be available for now.
