Add the Performance Monitor to a Microsoft Management Console and learn to open Performance Monitor directly from a Run dialog box. Use Performance Monitor to monitor a computer's fluctuating performance using counters such as % Processor Time and Interrupts/second. Modify graph view and explore other views.
- [Instructor] A computer's performance levels…are in a constant state of flux.…When several applications are running at once…and multiple processes and tasks…are competing for resources at the same time…system resources can become strained,…causing performance to suffer.…If you notice slowdowns you can use Performance Monitor…to view information about how well computer components…are handling the load,…and perhaps narrow the bottleneck down…to a single component, like CPU or RAM.…I'll open Performance Monitor…by typing it in the search window and selecting it.…
Let's maximize the window…and then in the left pane click Performance Monitor.…Performance Monitor is monitoring percent processor time.…This object counter represents the percentage of time…the processor was busy during the sampling interval.…If you notice that this object consistently posts over 85%…you can assume the CPU is overworked…and can't handle the load placed on it.…If you find this is the case…you can move the applications…that require extensive CPU resources…
