and running the application (requires administration rights)

query:

> select * from processes..lifecycle order by time desc limit 10
name: lifecycle

Example limiting the query to a time frame and a certain process:

select * from processes..lifecycle
   WHERE time > '2016-10-27T20:21:00Z' AND time < '2016-10-27T20:21:00Z' + 1m
   AND process_name = 'git.exe'
You can’t perform that action at this time.
