Monitoring Server CPU performance
Since June 2008 i am monitoring some important performance values, one of them
being CPU usage. When i started using Microsoft Windows Server 2008 with
, i almost immediately felt the need to
have some sort of monitoring for the server and for each virtual machine that
runs on it. Using some
queries i managed to create a script that periodically stores performance
information into my
Depending on the type of information these performance values are stored at
different intervals and kept in the SQL database for a specific time-period. For
example, CPU usage is only kept for 5 days, after that it will be deleted.
Information about percentage disk free space however, is kept much longer but it
also has a much longer interval: 1 day.
Gradually more and more pages will be added to show other performance values of
my server and virtual machines.
