Report Description Additional Information

Windows 7 Boot Performance

Provides an overview of boot performance issues encountered by users of Windows 7 clients. It provides in-depth information about the bottleneck resources that caused slowdown in the system boot process and pinpoints the various applications and services that used up those particular resources.

Overall Performance: This chart trends the average boot time, breaking it down by computer hardware manufacturer. The number of issues found in any particular computer type is normalized to enable you to compare computer types with each other and make better purchasing decisions. This chart shows information on the top 10 most problematic computer types. These computer types are identified by looking at the computer types that are consistently having the highest failure ratios over the last three months.

Root Causes: This chart displays the root causes that contributed to boot performance degradation. This charts the average number of times a particular root cause was evidenced in a particular week. Since each computer can have multiple root causes behind its degradation, these root causes together will not sum to the number of boot performance issues evidenced in the enterprise.

Windows 7 Boot Performance: Degraded Component
