How can one get the Advanced network settings > Data usage statistics in Windows 11 using PowerShell?

I couldn't figure out how to get the total data consumption per process using Get-NetAdapterStatistics.

I'm not aware of a native API that exposes this information, either WMI or Performance Monitor, which is typically what is leveraged by PowerShell. The network usage data is stored in a Microsoft Jet database, located at: C:\Windows\System32\sru\SRUDB.dat. This is functionality included in the System Resource Usage Monitor (SRUM), which is part of the Diagnostic Policy Service.

  • @AyanMullick: I don't think that would be needed. It's a database with a simple table. This could be a TSQL cmdlet or similar.

  • Is there an example of the TSQL to query the data consumption per process from SRUDB.dat so that one could query it from a Windows terminal? Aug 15 at 0:28
