How do I open resource monitor on remote computer? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I want to instantly view the CPU, RAM, Disk and Network usage of a remote computer in my Domain. How can I view this information of the target computer without using Remote Desktop Connection or Remote Assistance in windows provided by Microsoft to do this in the intranet?

    When I connect to the computer in the domain using Computer Management, I can see the local groups etc of the computer. I can access the information via Computer Management>System Tools>Local Users and Groups, but when I click on Open Resource Monitor in Computer Management>System Tools>Performance section on the computer I have the same connection, unfortunately, I am viewing the data of the source computer, that is, the computer I run Computer Management, not the target computer. RDP MSRA etc to a remote computer using this service or using another microsoft plugin. Can I open Resource Monitor without using it? Or can I view the instant CPU, RAM, Disk and Network usage of that computer with an alternative method?

    The matter is somewhat urgent and very important and I look forward to your return. Thanks in advance.

  • Did you try this?

    Install the Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit on the remote computer.

    At the local computer, use Windows NT Performance Monitor (Perfmon.exe) to create a workspace file:

     -    Start Performance Monitor, and then click Log on the View menu.
     -   Add the relevant counters, specifying all objects you want to log and the alerts you want to generate.
     -   On the Options menu, click Log.
     -  In the File Name box, specify a name for the log file using the .log extension.
     -   Click one of the logging interval options, and then click Save to save the logging options.
     -   On the File menu, click Save Workspace.
     -   In the File Name box, type a workspace file name using the .pmw extension, and then click Save.
     -   Quit Performance Monitor.

    Copy both the workspace file you just created and the Datalog.exe file included with the Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit to the %SystemRoot%\System32 folder on the remote computer.

    At the local computer, set up the Data Logging service for the remote computer:

        At the command prompt, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
        Console

    monitor \\remotecomputer setup

    This command registers the service with Windows NT Server 4.0. You need to run the command only once for each computer you want to monitor. If you receive the following error message:

        Failed to create Service

    it means that you have already run the command once.

    To use the workspace file for logging, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Console

     -   monitor \\remotecomputer filename

     -   where filename is the name of the workspace file you copied to the remote computer.

    To start the monitoring process, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Console

    - monitor \\remotecomputer start

    To stop the monitoring process, type the following command, and then press ENTER:
    Console

    - monitor \\remotecomputer stop

    After you stop the monitoring process, you can view the log file in Performance Monitor. For instructions about how to do this, see Help in Performance Monitor.

    Regards,
    Henry

  • To open the Resource Monitor on a remote computer, you can use the following steps:

    On the remote computer, press the Windows key + R to open the Run dialog box.

    In the Run dialog box, type "perfmon /res" and press Enter. This will open the Resource Monitor on the remote computer.

    Alternatively, you can also open the Task Manager on the remote computer and click the "Performance" tab. Then, click the "Open Resource Monitor" link in the bottom-right corner of the window.

    Keep in mind that in order to access a remote computer, you must have permission to do so and the remote computer must be turned on and connected to the network.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.

  • To open the Resource Monitor on a remote computer, you will need to use the Remote Desktop Connection feature in Windows. This allows you to connect to another computer on your network and access its files and programs.

    Here are the steps to open the Resource Monitor on a remote computer:

    On the computer you want to connect to, go to the Start menu and search for "Remote Desktop Connection".

    Open the Remote Desktop Connection application and enter the name or IP address of the remote computer you want to connect to.

    Click the "Connect" button to establish the connection.

    Once you are connected, you can open the Resource Monitor by going to the Start menu and searching for "Resource Monitor".

    The Resource Monitor will open and you will be able to monitor the resource usage of the remote computer.

    I hope this helps. Let me know if you have any other questions.
