Running perfmon on Windows 2003 Servers

Hi

We have an issue on a couple of our application servers (Windows 2003 SP2), and the vendor has recommended we run Perfmon to capture some stats, presumabely to check if the issue is hardware related.

Is it recommended to run Perfmon on the local server, or remotely from another server? And why?

Also, what permissions would be needed on both servers? If we ran from a remote server (can it be a PC even), will it affect the machine that is running the Perfmon?

I guess that running Perfmon actually takes up resources? Or are these negligible?
I would think the impact is negligible.
