Warning: this may get a bit long.
I'm trying to find a process monitor that shows usages in near-real-time.
It should show usage aggregates for 1 minute, 5 minutes, 15 minutes ...
Ideally 'twould show CPU activity, Disk I/O activity, RAM activity, GPU/graphics activity, traffic activity, maybe a few others, and log such as well as actively display.
Currently running Win7 RC (but have had similar problems with 2K/XP), and I'm running into periodic lockups. Some are obviously CPU related, but others are not. There tend to be three symptoms, although not always concurrent: jerky, erratic cursor control; window/screen refresh issues; hard disk i/o or network traffic issues. I know - ? - that some of the lockups are GPU related, and suspect that some are read/write related. (On the GPU side, I've enabled/disabled Aero, to no avail.)
There are a number of tools that will show real-time usage, but the changes tend to be too fast for these old eyes to record. Back in the corporate world, a decade ago, there was a utility on a DEC LAN - VMS? - that would log activity history for CPU, disk i/o, & traffic. I've yet to find any such tool for the current Windows world. Thought I might find something cross-platform at FreshMeat, but, alas, that seems fated not to be.
So ... anyone have a reference to any such tool(s)?
