In the Resource Monitor window, navigate to the "Network" tab.

Step 7: Select Game Processes

Under "Processes with Network Activity," you will find a list of processes currently using your network connection. Look for processes related to Palia. These processes often have names similar to the game. You may notice that Palia has multiple processes; it's essential to select them all.

Step 8: Check Ping

After selecting the Palia-related processes, examine the "TCP Connection" section in the "Network" tab. Here, you will find your ping or latency values associated with the game processes you've chosen. The ping will be displayed for each selected process.

⚠️ Identify the Right Process: Games or applications with multiple processes may display different ping values. In this case, you'll need to make an educated guess. Look for processes that exhibit fluctuating ping values, as these are typically the ones you are interested in.

📑 Note: Ping values can vary during gameplay, but a consistently high ping may indicate a problem either geographically or locally. It's crucial to compare your current ping with what's considered acceptable for online gaming (typically under 100ms).
