Thanks for the link Arun, I'll check out the link when I get some free time and update you on my findings.
comment Representing server state with a metric
You're absolutely right that analysis of the raw data alone won't sufficiently gauge the performance of a program. In addition to the analysis of raw data, we do performance tests across our websites at different intervals, but that was a bit more straightforward to implement, so I didn't mention it. I'm in favor of doing some straightforward 95th percentile analysis, but how do industries generally break down time zones? Is this taken into consideration? Is it as simple as delegating different blocks?

comment SYSTEM process not having write privileges
I'll try this now and accept the answer once checked, as this sounds like it's exactly what I was looking for. Thanks for the quick help!
comment Setting up perfmon across various servers
Thanks for your quick response, Jim. Can you elaborate on the first point, please? What does it mean if the perfmon process has more of an impact on the measured server?
