Windows 2000 Performance Tool
Using Performance Tools
The term “Windows 2000 Performance tool” is somewhat of a misnomer as it is composed of a minimum of two parts: System Monitor, and Performance Logs and Alerts. With System Monitor, you can collect and view real-time data about memory, disk, processor, network, and other activity in graph, histogram, or report form. Through the use of Performance Logs and Alerts you can configure logs to record performance data and set system alerts to notify you when a specified counter’s value is above or below a defined threshold.
Opening (Starting) Performance
- To open Performance, click Start, point to Settings, and then click Control Panel. In Control Panel, double-click Administrative Tools, and then double-click Performance.
- For information about using Performance Logs and Alerts, click the Action menu in Performance, and then click Help. For information about using System Monitor, in the console tree, click System Monitor, and then on the System Monitor toolbar, click the Help button.
Diskperf is a good example.
