if you are just wanting to monitor events etc then you need forwarded events >>> http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc748890.aspx

if you are wanting to monitor performance counters etc then we use GFI Remote Monitoring (not free) but it works perfect

Performance montior (perfmon) should do the job.  Included with windows, (just run perfmon).  Add counters (lots to choose from) on the remote machine (unc convention \\machinename) (that you have already authenticated to, e.g. by mapping a drive).

Well, that's what I was working with in the first place. But it does not connect to the remote computer (I'm domain admin in my lab so I do have the rights).

Hi,
 
To check the performance of remote machine , just connect to the remote machine and check the performance from task manager.

To open task manager in remote machine, just do right click on task bar of system machine.
or you can use keyboard short cut key,
ctrl+alt+delete

To make a remote connection process you can use detail from given blog link:

I rightclick on performance in performance monitor then connect to another computer with \\ or without \\ it does not work. I know I can add items to performance monitor in the monitoring tools section and that works but I wont to connect the performance item on top of the Performance monitor in order to be able to open the resource monitor of the remote system.

There are two requirements to viewing performance counters from a remote computer. First, the Performance Logs and Alerts firewall exception must be enabled on the remote computer. Second, users in the Performance Log Users group must also be listed inthe Event Log Readers group on the remote computer.

Remote computers don't have any firewall restrictrions. As domain admin I should have all accesses by default.

Pretend I too am a computer, and you are arguing with it that you are the admin, despite getting a permissions problem.  How far do you expect to get?  Domain Admin can't magically do everything, e.g. UAC is not automatically disabled.

With default settings (but: here 8.1 paired with a 2012 R2) I can use the mmc to control perfmon from remote. Steps are described here: http://tipcooker.blogspot.de/2012/02/windows-allow-remote-performance.html
