Simpler Navigation for Servers and Operating Systems
Completed: a much simpler Servers and Operating Systems section of the Community. We combined many of the older boards, so you won't have to click through so many levels to get at the information you need. Check the consolidated boards here as many sub-forums are now single boards.

Re: Memory

Hi there.
Try to install glance trial version from the application cd. That will give you a real overview. If you like that tool, think about a license.

Re: Memory

Hi
you could also evaluate PerfView and MeasureWare

MeasureWare is able to collect metrics representing system usage and workload for each subsystem (swap,CPU,memory,network)

PerfView is a graphical tool able to make graphics from collection data collected by MeasureWare.
Nothing is impossible
