* The Vista performance/health monitor is actually pretty good, and provides a really handy ntop-like interface for seeing which service is doing what with the network (not as fine grained as I'd like, but it's a good starting point).
You are referring to the performance monitor that appears in server manager? For some reason I can't leave that monitor running on our systems, because it slows the rest of the system down to a crawl.
How many hardware guys does it take to change a light bulb? "Well the diagnostics say it's fine buddy, so it's a software problem."
