How to use performance monitor to diagnose bottlenecks in your application?Monitor is a tool built to assist you in diagnosing the problem.
Type ‘perfmon’ in command prompt to access Performance Monitor
The counters, sampling intervals, etc can be used to monitor the performance.
A baseline should be established so that critical reference points, changes and trends can be observed and identified.
Results can be made more readable by removing all the distracting sample noise so that the graphical view of trend lines is not blurred. This can be done using buckets - a vertical line, indicating the minimum, average, and maximum of the sample points in the bucket.
It should be noted that the bottlenecks can be caused due to over utilization of physical disk, memory, process, CPU, and network.
