Tip:Command-Line Options for Faster Access to Performance Data
The following options give greater control of Perfmon.exe directly from the command-line: perfmon /rel Lets you review your computer’s reliability and problem history (the same result as right-clicking the Monitoring Tools node in Performance Monitor and selecting View System Reliability). perfmon /report Collects performance data for 60 seconds and then generates and displays a system diagnostics report. perfmon /res Opens the Resource Monitor (the same result as right-clicking the Monitoring Tools node in Performance Monitor and selecting Resource Monitor). perfmon /sys Opens the Performance Monitor in stand-alone mode (the Sysmon.ocx ActiveX control). An additional option, /comp, allows for comparison overlay between two open instances of Performance Monitor. Note that these options are for use with Perfmon.exe but not for use with Perfmon.msc.
