Specific counters are introduced to help better understand the performance of a computer running Windows Server by monitoring the processors and the memory. You will learn how to interpret the results of these counters and what to do with them. The concept of baselining is introduced to provide additional meaning to monitor results.

On the screen right now,…we have percent processor time split out…to show the different processor separately.…This is a general tool that even if it's consistently high,…it doesn't tell us whether or not anything is wrong,…but it does tell us that we need to learn more…about our server.…If percent processor time is high,…that means that the CPU is being used to capacity.…What we need to find out…is whether that's because windows and our applications…are making effective use of the processor that we have…
