This chapter covers the following 70-680 Objectives:

• Monitoring and Maintaining Systems that Run Windows 7:

• Monitor systems

Performance is the overall effectiveness of how data moves through the system. To be able to improve performance, you must determine the part of the system that is slowing down the throughput; it could be the speed of the processor, the amount of RAM on the machine, the speed of the disk system, the speed of the network adapter card, or some other factor. This limiting factor is referred to as the bottleneck of the system.
