Try to use Process Explorer to identify the bottleneck on Window 2003 Server.

1. How value for cpu, disk, memory, etc can I treat as abnormal ?
2. From the attached graphic, some of the PID in Process Explorer can't be find in Window Task manager. Is that correct ?

1st open command prompt and run "tasklist" to findout PID for particular program

and also cross verify whether that process ID is accessing any network shared devices by checking "netstat -no"

compare PID and run Process explorer check

1) this depends on what the system is running.  i can't make too much out of this since a lot of it is in chinese but seeing the cpu graph constantly spiking to 100% need to investigate if that is not expected

2) what do you mean by the PID not being found?  that definitely isn't task manager; looks like resource monitor.  also, items like interrupts, system idle process are not actual processes so there wouldn't be a PID

For the attached graphic, one screen is dumped from Window Task manager and the other is dumped from Sysinternals Process Explorer.

For the PID 1108 in the attached Window Task Manager does not appear in Sysinternals Processor Explorer. Any idea ?

Is it easy to identify whether the cpu, memory, io, etc running from each process is abnormal based on the value shown in Process Explorer ?

again, that is not windows task manager; it is resource monitor
process list does not appear on the same tab as the cpu/memory graph in task manager

regardless, 1108 is svchost which is used to run services
if you go to view -> show process tree you will see the svchost process under wininit and that PID will be there

whether resource usage is abnormal depend on what it is
for example, if you have an exchange server and you see that store.exe is using 90% of all physical memory, that is normal in that case because it's by design

For the PID shown under Processor Explorer, Resource Monitor and Task Manager, do they relate to each other ? Do they identify the same process & task in the system ?

Great thanks.

yes, each process is given a unique process ID (PID)
whatever PID you see in task manager, you'll see the same in process explorer
