Using Performance Monitor with Other Workstations on Your Network
One of the best benefits of Performance Monitor is its capability to monitor object: counter relationships on systems located throughout the network. Any other Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT workstation connected to the same network can be monitored using Performance Monitor. Multiple systems, each with their own set of counters, can be monitored in the same view. This makes Performance Monitor a useful tool for network administrators who need to obtain performance data from multiple systems on the network in addition to seeing how the load on workstations and servers across the network are influencing the overall network performance.
