Performance reporting in Windows 7 and SBS2008

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
I am looking to help someone diagnose some performance problems with their SBS2008 device.

I was just going to run Windows' built-in performance reporting and get an idea if its CPU, memory, network, disk-related. However, there are hundreds of performance counters for the default keywords (CPU/Memory/Disk/Network/Performance).

What are some of the most useful performance counters to look at when trying to track down what is causing their performance issues?

Thanks guys!

That's not what I am talking about.

I am talking about the performance reporting tools snap-in (Start -> perfmon.msc).

They're all important, what exactly are you trying to track?

Right, but I don't want to have 500 different values to track and have complete analysis paralysis.

The user is saying that the server is behaving 'slowly'. However, I don't have a good idea of what that means. They do a lot of art asset transfer across the network (standard, non-gigabit cat5e, 100MBit switch, only about 12 users at a time). Only about 1 person does the art transfers at a time, rest are spreadsheets, etc.

I am trying to determine if the bottleneck is disk, network or that they are actually pushing the CPU itself to its limit. I would tend to think network would be the slowest component.

Hard Disk Faults / second is IO for HDD

How big are the files they're transferring? Very unlikely that it's the physical network port on the computer. Even less likely considering it's an SBS08 device. They don't normally have fast hard drives.

I doubt CPU is being taxed at all. It's just copy dating...
