MS SQL 2008 R2 Activity Monitor - Normal readings

Posted on 2011-05-09
Last Modified: 2012-05-11
Hi Experts - I just became an accidental DBA and I'm trying to become more familiar with the activity monitor.  A lot of the readings are self explanatory and are similar to the resource monitor.  Can someone point me to some documentation that explains other readings that may be abnormal?  Such as wait times, etc. ?  Thanks!

    Here is just one article I could find... hope it helps.

    I think it will be difficult to find a write-up that has actual values since system configurations vary greatly.  It all depends on what is tolerable to the given config and you.

    Thanks.  But how do I know if there is a bottleneck or if one is forming?
