Task Manager

While Window 9.x has available in some form or another an agent to inform you of what a system is doing with an application, known as the Resource Monitor, it can’t old a candle to what NT can do.

There are two different monitors in NT. The big gun is called Performance Monitor. Performance Monitor is wonderful, and it is possible to write an entire book about its use. One challenge with Performance Monitor is it can eat all the computer resources of the PC it is monitoring.

This is where the second tool comes in real handy. It is called the Task Manager. The Task Manager can give you a real time view of what is running, how much CPU tibme is being used, how much memory is in use, right down to the details of how often it had to go to the swap file to continue operations.

There are several ways to get to the Task Manager. Right clicking the Task Bar, pressing CTRL-ALT-DEL and selecting Task Manager CTRL-SHIFT-ESC all get you there.
