Resource Meter

By BetsySal ·
I'm glad to see someone else using the Resource Meter. I, quite often, do put a shortcut in the startup for my customers to keep an eye on their resources. Particularly, I've been watching the resource meter at one customer, trying to explain to him what the resource meter indicates. Here's a brief of the scenario and the question I have for you. Windows98SE peer-to-peer, 11 workstations with not all connecting at the same time. The pc/server is dedicated; 300 watt power; 512 MB RAM; 7200RPM IDE; AMD 1600 chip. The customer is experiencing slowdowns to the users and is watching the System Monitor rather than the resource meter. The system monitor indicates high kernel usage percentages. This is true even when the office is closed and no one is attached. AMD reports no issues with this chip. Microsoft reports, this can be reading backward, thus looking horrible to the user. I'm about to install a SCSI drive, in hopes of speeding up things. Can you explain the System Monitor in understandable terms like you do the resource meter? Do you have any suggestions for me?
