Checking Performance of Server

We can easily calculate the performance of a system by looking at their specifications and the data stored in the system. Windows 7 is one of the complex systems in the world and it is used in millions of computers all over the world. Due to this; there is a huge demand for their technicians and this is one of the best field in the world. If you are a student and are confused about your future; then you should consider pursuing a certification in the information technology sector. There are many certifications that can help you but you should start with the entry level certification also known as MTA. In MTA you will have to clear many exams and the most important one is MTAwindows server administration fundamentals.

Evaluating the Performance of Windows Server:
Computer is a mixture of different components and all the components have their specific usage. The performance of every component is very important and when the performance of a components reaches its limit; the component is termed as bottleneck. A bottleneck component can cause other bottlenecks in the system. Let’s assume that the memory system of the computer has reached its limit and now it will be termed as bottleneck. You will increase the memory of the computer and it will increase the overall performance of the system. When the RAM of the computer is increased; more data will be added in the computer not now the hard disk will become the bottleneck component. After adding RAM; the overall performance of the system will increase but you will look at the possibility of another bottleneck.

There are many performance problems that cannot be identified easily. For identify the performance of the computer; you need to run the computer normally and after that in the designed specifications. When running in the design specification mode; when the problem occurs you will compare it with the baseline and see the difference in the system. The performance of the system regularly changes and it is recommended that you set the change the baseline of the server accordingly. When the proper baseline is set; you will know when to upgrade or change your server.

Tools to Analyze Performance:
To evaluate the performance of the computer and the server; there are many tools. The information regarding the tools is given below.

Task Manager:
Task manager is the coolest program to check the performance of the system and you can also use this to evaluate the performance of the Windows Server 2009 R2. When you run the performance monitor of the windows server; you will see five tabs.

Applications: this tab will show the status of the running applications and will provide you the data and information of all the programs that have stopped working. With the help of task manager; you can end the program or start a new one.

Processes: Show all the processes
Services: Current services of the computer will be shown in this tab
Performance: the data related to physical memory and CPU use
Networking: The connected devices
