Best representation of memory and cpu usage

I have the memory and cpu data usage for an application that I am monitoring at various stages. I would like to represent it in some kind of a graph or a chart for a report that I will be generating using Microsoft Excel 2007. Please suggest an appropriate or innovative way of doing the same.

you'll probably want a line chart, as rorya suggested, and plot the CPU on the primary axis and the Memory on the secondary axis, since you will probably be dealing with different units of measurement.

If you measure Memory in GigaByte and CPU in percent or another large number unit, then they won't present well on the same axis.

cheers, teylyn
You will need to post some sample data for us to help you with this...your question is not clear.

I'd use a line chart with two data series.

I use PRTG for that:

For me it's at least as effective.
