This course will teach you the reasons why routine performance monitoring of your servers is an essential task for all administrators and the capabilities of the built-in tools you have at your disposal to meet these tasks.
Routine performance monitoring of your servers is an essential task for all administrators. In this course, Windows Server Administration Concepts: Performance Management, you’ll learn to identify and describe the monitoring tools for Windows Server. First, you’ll explore the four main subsystems which require routine monitoring. Next, you’ll discover the real-time and data collector tools used to create baselines and monitor the Server. Finally, you’ll learn how to collect and collate events and reports from remote Servers. When you’re finished with this course, you’ll have the skills and knowledge of Windows Server performance management needed to effectively monitor and collect performance counters and events from a wide range of resources.

Course Overview Hi everyone, my name's Phil Chapman. Welcome to my course on Windows Server Administration Concepts, looking at Performance Management. I'm a Microsoft certified trainer and a senior instructor at Firebrand Training. Performance management is a crucial part of any administrator's daily tasks, and Windows Server has some key tools built into it that allow you to do this effectively and efficiently. These are standard tools on most Windows operating systems, and so the skills you learn on this course will assist you on both server and client operating systems. In this course, we're going to discuss and demonstrate how to use the built‑in tools to conduct server performance management on a Windows Server 2019 platform. Some of the major topics that we will cover include the four main critical subsystems of a computer system, real‑time performance monitoring, creating baseline analysis, and viewing events and collecting logs. By the end of this course, you'll know what key areas should be monitored on a server and which tools are appropriate for each task. Before beginning the course, you should be familiar with the fundamentals of a Windows operating system, including application and hardware configuration. I hope you'll join me on this journey to learn performance management with the Windows Server Administration Concepts course, here at Pluralsight.
