How to see currently used resources?

By techless ·
I have an NT server (BDC) that is used as a file server. On the console screen I regularly watch the performance monitor ? bytes total / sec (server), % processor time (processor), and 1,000 pages/sec (memory). Lately the performance monitor shows a regular pattern of spikey activity for the processor and memory, and a raised level for the server reading.
I would like to know what processes or services are using these resources and creating the activity on the performance monitor. In windowsyou can do the CTRL-ALT-DEL and see the current programs that have resources tied up.
How can I see that or look at what is creating that action on the NT server?

You are very close with the Ctrl-Alt-Del. Use Task Manager from there, or right click on your task bar and choose Task Manager. Check you Processes and Applications tabs.

You can also do some detailed analysis with Perfmon if you want to spendsome quality time with that tool. I generally use additional tools such as Patrol to manage mulitple systems.

Thanks ... that shows me what I wanted to see ... next thing will be to figure out what process is TAPISRV.EXE. Any knowledge about what that does?
