I'm not well versed in the monitoring of performance when it comes to Windows (WinXP, Vista, Server 2k3 and above and now Win7). But I know Linux monitoring and I know that I really like
collectl. In particular I like that:
- By default it grabs everything it can on each monitor cycle. I don't find myself wishing I'd been collecting X all along,
collectljust happened to be grabbing it all, all along.
- I can have it export the data to my own aggregation tools using the output plugin architecture.
Add to that it's free.
Is there a comparable free product that can do the all-in type monitoring and data export for Windows? I'd even be okay writing my own data export if there's an all-in monitoring solution that can write the data to local disk.
