This gallery is also available as a TechRepublic article.

In Windows Vista's Task Manager: The harder-to-detect changes, I provided you with an overview of the changes and new features in Windows Vista's Task Manager. As I did so, I described the Performance tab, which contains two sets of graphs and three tables, as the most changed tab in Windows Vista's Task Manager and then told you that it is actually more useful than its predecessor.

In this gallery, I'll describe the information on the Performance tab in more detail. As I do, I'll explain how to use it to track performance.
