When you are working on Windows PC and you see some performance issues on your computer, it is not an easy task to find out performance issues and check what exactly is causing it. To help combat such situations, you can try using SysGauge, a free real time performance monitoring for Windows. This free utility allows you to monitor the CPU usage, memory usage, network transfer rate, operating system performance, the status and resource usage of running processes, file system performance, USB performance, disk space usage, disk read activity, disk write activity, disk read transfer rate, disk write transfer rate, disk read IOPS and disk write IOPS for individual logical disks or all physical disks installed in the computer.
Once installed, the app allows users to pick the monitoring charts and get real time information of these tasks. You can also export system monitoring results to a number of standard formats including HTML, PDF, Excel, text, CSV and XML. In addition to the ability to monitor the local computer, SysGauge allows one to connect to remote computers and monitor the CPU usage, memory usage, network transfer rate, disk space usage and disk activities via the network.
The SysGauge system monitoring utility provides different types of performance monitoring, system resource monitoring and operating system status monitoring counters and allows one to select which counters to monitor.
List of monitoring options available in SysGauge:
- CPU Usage
- Memory Usage
- Disk Activity
- Network Activity
- Operating System Monitoring
- Process Monitoring
- File System
- USB performance monitoring.
The app also allows you to perform tasks with conditional monitoring which means if a value set by you exceeds the threshold value, it provides a warning and it also allows one to automatically shutdown or restart the computer when one or more critical system monitoring counters rise above or drop below user-specified limits. A restart might definitely have an impact on the performance issues.
Overall, SysGauge is one of the best free tools to monitor your Windows PC and it is supported on both 32 bit and 64 bit versions.
