I use /proc/pid/status |grep VmRSS on Linux to find out the memory usage of specific process.

Is it possible to do the same thing on Windows?

tasklist /FI "PID eq ABCD" /FO csv - displays very basic info for a process; you can pipe it through findstr to get just the line/string for the memory

I think the Sysinternals tool pslist might help you.

Reference: pslist
