Perfmon in Vista

A friend of mine, Patrick Altman, shared this one with me and I wanted to pass it along.

In Vista, there is a new feature of the performance monitor that is really neat. It is the report view. To get to it, you have to type in perfmon /report. It will then run a performance report for 60 seconds. You will then get a report of your system’s health.

The first section of the report is a set of warnings on potential problems with your system, like services or drivers that failed or lack of disk space. Very useful.

One that he pointed out was DISK >> Hot Files, which shows the files with the greatest amount of activity.
