How Performance Monitor Communicates
The Performance Monitor works with the underlying connectivity inherent in Windows XP, Windows 2000, and Windows NT, specifically using the DNS protocol included as part of the TCP/IP command set. The Performance Monitor is also a multithreaded networked application that can also monitor the events on other systems as well. Using the Select Counters from Computer: entry gives you the flexibility of monitoring any other Windows NT and Windows 2000-compatible workstation or server on the network. The DNC-naming convention is most often used on Windows NT and Windows 2000 systems, making it possible to find any and all compatible systems on a network using the options in Performance Monitor for gauging overall system performance.
