  • Performance can be measured using the Windows Performance Analyzer (WPA), which is free and part of the Assessment and Deployment Kit (ADK). There are a variety of APIs for manipulating the screen, such as ChangeDisplaySettingsEx

  • If you mean programmatically, then yes, using ETW - but, you're going to spend many man-years writing the same tools to gather and process the data
