How can I use the task manager in Windows XP?
Mostly concerned with the performance tab and what each value indicates and how to use that information to determine the bottleneck in my system.
I have never had much luck using task manager to determine if the bottleneck is a slow hard drive, insufficient or slow speed ram, hard drive dying, etc...
Asking for a link to a good tutorial or some advice on how to use task manager.
Should the kernel memory be all non paged?
Should the commit charge be below the amount of physical memory?
Can I tell if my page file is too small or large by using task manager? Currently my page file is set to 1500 mb initial and maximum.
I would really like to master the use of the task manager.
Is task manager a good troubleshooting tool?
My laptop is a Sony Vaio Pent 4 2.80ghz processor with 512 ddr sdram and sometimes it is painfully slow.
I have had advice to upgrade to 1gb of ram and maybe get a faster hard drive.
Does task manager show that?
