Windows Performance


I need to collect CPU, storage, network and RAM performance from 15 physical windows servers for a whole week on 15 min intervals. I guess that perfmon is my solution but the servers are in production and I need some one that did it before to share his experience. Thanks in advance.

you can try using ZABBIX, its an open source monitoring software that monitor such actions on servers and computers,. you can download it from and you can find plenty of tutorials on youtube

Thanks for the response. I would use it but the customer is very conservative about additional software.
Sam Simon NasserIT Support ProfessionalCommented:
its free, open source, no need to pay anything. unless you are looking for support other than youtube and internet forums.
as far as i know, windows cannot put all information of all servers in one place.
IT Pros Agree: AI and Machine Learning Key

We’d all like to think our company’s data is well protected, but when you ask IT professionals they admit the data probably is not as safe as it could be.

Yes, perfmon can be used for this. Before deploying perfmon performance counters and data collector sets using scripts , you should make sure you have tested that on a single system.

If I were in your situation then I would probably just download a trial of PRTG (their free version may even be sufficient - you can monitor 6 metrics per server in your case). You only have to install it once (not on all 15 servers) and I suspect that the whole thing won't take you more than an hour tops.

There are a lot of options at your disposal, so it depends on how much time you want to spend. Considering that you are only collecting the data for one week I wouldn't spend too much time on a solution (IMHO).

- You can run a performance monitor on your servers, generate a complete and detailed report at hardware and software level.

- You can install the Veeam One tool to monitor all your servers, it also generates well detailed reports of your environment.
