We will deploying some security+backup tools to our clients. I will be
conducting a pilot to measure the increase in activity in HDD, CPU,
memory, network while the tools are running. So we would like to
create a baseline without the tools and then capture the impact with
the tools running.
Since we will be running the tests on few hundred machines, I would
like to completely automate the process. Essentially I want log files
to be generated on each machine.
I looked on systernals.com site but couldn't find anything that can help us.
Windows' perfmon is an option.
Any other suggestions with great logging capabilities? We don't want
centralized logging because that will incur network impact on its own,
which we don't want to measure.
