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 Hyper-V, 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 Powershell code, WMI queries i managed to create a script that periodically stores performance information into my SQL Server.

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.
