Join Simon Allardice for an in-depth discussion in this video Detailed monitoring tools: PC, part of Foundations of Programming: Code Efficiency.
When developing on windows you can get to exactly the same…level of information once you get beyond the basics of task manager.…Now while you can get to a great…deal of detail without installing any other programs…as you can on the mac, there are…a couple of additional downloads I'm going to recommend.…The first are a couple of tools developed by Sysinternals, which is now part…of Microsoft, but you can get to this website by just going to sysinternals.com.…That will redirect you to the…Technet section at Microsoft.…Now, this site has many separate free troubleshooting…tools, a lot of which are aimed at…system administrators so you don't need the 60…or 70 tools available in the Sysinternals suite.…
