Performance Monitor

In previous versions of Windows, a program called the System Monitor was located in the Systems Tools program group. Windows 2000 includes an almost identical tool renamed the Performance Monitor, and you access it through the Control Panel's Administrative Tools folder.

If you're not familiar with it, this tool creates a graphical and/or numeric display of essential system information, such as memory usage, status of hard disk usage, CPU activity, network traffic, and many other quantifiable aspects of your computer's real-time operations. You can display the gathered information in graph, histogram, or numeric format. Displaying this information is useful for trying to get a handle on what's happening with your computer, particularly when you're troubleshooting or tracking down bottlenecks.
