Without the proper monitoring tool, even the best system engineers can only guess at what causes a complex system to run slowly. Being intelligent about what, when and how much data you collect is the key to having enough of the right data available to solve the problem at hand.
Windows is heavily instrumented with performance data—with literally hundreds of performance metrics (Objects and Counters) available. The trouble is that this means there is too much data to collect everything, all the time. Most enterprises have too little expertise in understanding and analyzing the data collected.
In order to quickly pinpoint performance bottlenecks and project future capacity needs, you need an intelligent, systematic, and organized way to continuously collect and correlate performance data across all your machines. Performance Sentry delivers the functionality to address those needs.
