I am a big fan of Rohitab API Monitor.  When Procmon cannot pull the details I am looking for, I resort to Rohitab API Monitor.  In fact, I've used Rohitab API Monitor to figure out why procmon would not load!  The coolest new feature in the latest version is saving traces.

I have previously blogged about why Rohitab API Monitor should be in your toolkit in An API Monitor That Speaks My Language.  In previous versions there was no ability to save and share traces - so diagnostics had to be done in front of the machine having the problem.  

Version 2, Alpha-13, has the following:

  • Save Traces (and share them).
  • Windows 8 Monitoring.
  • Metadata for 2500 Additional API Calls and 500 Additional COM Interfaces.
  • Pause and restart tracing.
  • Improved portability.

If procmon can't find it, Rohitab API Monitor probably can!
