I am incurring frequent periods where server response is very slow both internally and on external maped drives by remote users.  I am looking for a program, preferably a free one, that is easy to use that will record data rates with dates and time tags.
Any other useful information to help determine what is occuring or using resources.
I have 3 servers: File Server 2008 with Sharepoint server, Exchange server 2010, DPM backup server with server 2008.

@madunix: one of the reasons I put the EE link above was because you gave a very elaborate overview of tools in there (and thank you for that). Every time someone asks, I come up with this link.

Thx!

@erniebeek: great.... "I have forgotten" cacti should have been added to the list. Nagios  is used for Alarms/Monitoring and Cacti+RRD for Trending/Graphs.
