It's difficult to tell what is being asked here. This question is ambiguous, vague, incomplete, overly broad, or rhetorical and cannot be reasonably answered in its current form.

I am a bit confused why this question is closed. Windows performance monitor is basic and it is not the most user friendly tool. Paid alternatives such as Microsoft system center could cost high. I have been referred to PolyMon and PolyMonRT as reasonable alternative. I am trying them for a few hours and they are working nicely. I am just sharing here, so it might help someone with similar requirement. – Allan Xu Dec 9 '11 at 17:39

Dump the data to a CSV via PowerShell and WMI then make a nice graph. What do you want that PerfMon isn't doing?
