I am monitoring 4 web servers that are each running multiple w3wp processes.  Each day, we generate and email a report that includes the private bytes of the w3wp process on our web servers.  Our problem is that we cannot specify which instance of the process gets reported.  For example, one of our servers reports the following instance:

private bytes reported W02 server.JPG

When the maximum value for w3wp on the server is:

PID 8120 on W02 server.JPG

In an ideal world, we'd like to be able to specify the PID or specify that we want the greatest private bytes value for the process.

Given our environment, we are only allowed to use SNMP for monitoring at this time, but since SNMP is reporting the PIDs, we hope this would not be an issue.
