Performance Monitoring ?

Anybody got code or a component to get to the performance monitoring functions under NT ? And how does this differ from the stuff stored in Windows 95's registry ?

Regarding the code: I have done a cool set of classes for reading the performance data in NT, I'm just cleaning it up and I will them monday as the answer to ffrand's question regarding Performance data.

Regarding the performance data in 95 vs. NT, it can be found under the Hkey_dyn_data key, but you seem to know that.
The difference is that the data in 95 is rather simple and not that detailed, in return it's easy to get and use, in NT the data is highly detailed and extremly complex, in NT you get the data by requesting the field 'global' from Hkey_performance_data, this yields a huge binary gob that you have to figure out on your own, furthermore the raw data that you get once you dismantle the structure has to undergo a strange cooking proccess to be useful.
For example: to get processor usage:
1) get cpu counter from system object
2) wait...
3) get cpu counter from system object
4) divide delta counter by the time consumed during wait.

And getting the cpu time is a simple matter, there are a lot (30) different modifiers that has to be taken into account.

To further complicate matters there are 3 different timebases used by the data, of wich one of them can change from object to object.

The url to my delphi NT performance lib will be:

This addy will be valid from monday 29/9 1997 and the file will contains full source to both the classes and a couple of cool example programs.
