In the previous chapter, I discussed techniques for monitoring and optimizing Windows systems. Monitoring is the process by which systems are regularly checked for problems. Optimization is the process of fine-tuning system performance to maintain or achieve its optimal capacity. Now that you know the essentials for monitoring and optimization, let’s dig deeper and look at techniques that you can use to:
Manage applications, processes, and performance.
Monitor and maintain a computer’s performance.
Detect and resolve performance issues.
