It basically shows you what the computer resources are like, the graph that fluctuates up and down is the % of the processor you are using.

Thats not a dyno, more like an rpm gauge.

I agree with ABEX, basically a gauge setup for what is going on in your XP equipped system. Only good if you know what your looking at however................

Performance Monitor

Performance Monitor is tool that's been around in the Windows server and now desktop platforms, for use to monitor, baseline and track system performance over time.

Basically, when running, you can keep track of your memory usage, what application is using the memory and what type of memory it is usings. It can track harddrive, processor, as well as NIC statistics over time.

Here is a link that has an overview of Performance Monitor (Also known as System Monitor): http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tre..._MPtopnode.asp

Here is the link on how to setup and use the performance monitor functions:
http://www.microsoft.com/technet/tre...monperf_08.asp

As Abex said it takes time reviewing and monitoring your system to understand what it all means and what it tells you.

Ping me if you have some questions. Thanks, B.

Easier ways to access the program in question is to press ALT+CTRL+DEL, or right click in the task bar and click "Task Manager." Fun little program when you're bored.
