Welcome to the Windows Performance Toolkit forum!Welcome to the Windows Performance Toolkit forum!
As part of Microsoft's initiative to help its partners and customers improve the performance of their Windows systems, Windows group has released in Feb'08 the Windows Performance Toolkit. Version 4.1 of this toolkit has shipped in the Windows Server 2008 SDK and subsequent v.4.1.1 update has been made available on WHDC at http://www.microsoft.com/whdc/system/sysperf/perftools.mspx.
This toolkit isn't for everyone - to use it effectively, you need to have a grasp of the basic OS internals such as processes, threads, DPCs (deferred procedure calls), ISRs (interrupt service routines), I/O subsystem, registry, etc. Yet one need not be a system developer to use it either. First level triage (e.g. which component is responsible for system slowdown?, is it a CPU or a disk usage issue?, etc.) can often be done with only the basic understanding of the above mentioned concepts, something people usually cover in an introductory 101 OS course. An expert in that area, can then use the same toolkit to dig deeper into the issue, root-cause it, and work on providing a fix for it. A great reference for understanding OS Internals is the Microsoft Windows Internals (4th edition) book from Mark Russinovich and David Solomon. We highly recommend you get a copy if you plan on using this toolkit routinely.
You can use this forum to ask questions about the toolkit, as well as share tips and tricks with other users on how you've used it successfully in the past. We are hoping that this forum will help build a vibrant environment of performance analyst hobbists and professionals alike, where you can find support from both the Microsoft team shipping these tools to you as well as the MVPs using it on a daily basis.
The toolkit comes with MSDN documentation available at http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa139734.aspx. We recommend you consult it before asking questions on this forum. We would also like to hear feedback from you on our documentation - what are we missing, is something incorrect in the documentation, etc. You can provide it by sending email to email@example.com.
