Performance Monitor Baseline

By prust ·
What triggers would be best to capture a baseline performance on an NT network (running only tcp/ip)? I need to start a baseline and run a saved log to compare performance results?

I recommend the NT utility, Network Monitor.

Using performance monitor (PERFMON), there are a couple of things you can do, which I have listed below. PERFMON can take measurements from multiple machines, using the Computer field on the Add Counter dialog. BUT, you're limited in the network-related counters you can measure.

Network Monitor (NETMON) is the way to go if you want to measure network performance. That's what it was designed for.

Having said that, here is what PERFMON can do for you. It's not a whole lot.

The object"NBT Connection" can give you a several bytes/second measurements, but unfortunately that's only for NBT (NetBIOS over TCP).

The object "Server" can also give you some measurements in bytes/second. Again, this is for very specialized traffic.

Use performance monitor, to capture network activites in the morning (rush hours), and
in the evening when is not busy. For some period of time exemple 1 month. Then you can see the difference in network performance.

Always you can spot the difference of performance, when users are starting to complain, when it takes them longer then usual to logon to the network. Then your base line should show some abnormalites, on the network.
Then is even much easyer to spot bottlenecs!

You cancreate alerts, for exemple if your disks are reaching 85% capasity, or cpu's, memory is low, etc... then workstation sends you a alert.
