TIP: Vista performance tools

Posted on January 17, 2008. Filed under: Tip |

I can’t always remember where I learn my favourite tips, but I think this one came from Adam Cogan at a recent .Net User Group meeting. In any case, it is covered via my usual Disclaimer.

Here’s how to run a quick performance monitor check on your Vista machine.

Go to the orb, and type in perf in the Search box

Vista Start menu

Choose the Reliability and Performance Monitor application. When it opens, click the Reliability Monitor option.

Reliability and Performance Monitor

In the timeline on the right you can now click on any of the events to see what happened on your machine, be it a software update, application crash, etc.

Great for working out what may have changed recently on your machine, if it suddenly starts playing up.
