Sharepoint 2012 process monitoring

Our SharePoint admin is having extreme difficulties with locks and slowness when updating anything via SharePoint itself (especially imports of data from sources like excel). Need a tool to monitor SharePoint and find out where these issues exactly are occurring. Is there something that can monitor the process? There are three load balanced Sharepoint (2010) servers; all with a ton of horsepower and a search/crawl/SQL server. Therefore it is inefficient to chase down the problems every time something occurs without a tool to monitor it down to a process level. We currently have foglight to monitor everything but it doesn't do quite the job I want it to do.... Please chime in!!!

1.) Developer Dashboard - you can download it from codeplex
This sharepoint solution is used to add a secondary windows to a page to see, which items need which time to load.

2.) Sharepoint Logs.
The default logs in combination with Sharepoint ULS viewer (Log file viewer) - also from codeplex - shows you not only errors and everything what is going on, it groups together also execution times for complete sequences (correlations).
And if this is not enought, you can even raise the log level in Sharepoint to get more information.

Perfmon (the standard MS performance tool) is also very useful, if a little difficult to configure.  Here is a guide for Sharepoint: http://blogs.msdn.com/b/russmax/archive/2009/05/27/configuring-performance-monitor-log-for-sharepoint-performance-issues.aspx?Redirected=true

If you are getting locks then it may be your SQL server that is the bottleneck, in which case you can use perfmon to analyse SQL performance.  Here is an example: http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2008/02/14/sql-server-introduction-to-performance-monitor-how-to-use-perfmon/
