CPU Usage - Perfmon
Posted on 2007-08-01
I have about 15 Servers and I would like to monitor their CPU Usage for about 3 major programs they use, I know i can do this with perfmon, but need some expert assistance in terms of setting it up and logging it and how to retrieve it so i can show it to management.
I looked at perfmon and it doesn't give me a 'CPU Usage' Option but only gives processor time for that .exe under the process counter.
Also, these servers are dual CPU, dual core, so they come up with 4 processors under Win2K3, how can u accurately tell what amount of cpu is being used, this is very important as i need to monitor they usage so mgmt can make a decesion on if we need to upgrade to the quad core servers or not. So assistance in setting this up would highly be appreciated.
