I really like the task manager in Windows 8. It is really easy to identify most of the time why the computer is running slow. It helps knowing what applications demand disk, CPU, Memory and network! Just what was needed?

The only problem I have is these are short periods in time. Is there any way to capture all this information and view it later as historical performance data?

Thanks,

Use Performance Monitor, create a new Data Collector set and as long as it's running you can collect whatever data types you want and save the results for later viewing.
