Windows performance Monitor log files
Solutions provider takeaway: The performance monitor in Windows 7 can help ease the process of monitoring Windows 7 performance data. Using data collector sets from Windows 7 Performance Monitor, you can now view data and configure how it is archived.
Working with the Performance Monitor
For many years, the Performance Monitor tool stood alone. In Vista, it was combined with the Resource Monitor and the Reliability Monitor. It was also given a new structure for collecting data. The Performance Monitor can show you performance data in either real-time or from a log file. Data Collector Sets can be set to run immediately or on a schedule to collect and analyze specific aspects of your system.
Monitoring Tools, Performance Monitor (see Figure 11.6) displays a visual representation of your system so you can inspect a variety of components, beyond what the Resource Monitor shows you. Initially, you won't see more than the % Process Time. You can add more performance metrics (called counters) by hitting the + sign.
When you first see the number of possible counters and instances, the task of choosing which items to monitor can seem overwhelming. There are roughly 100 different Performance objects for any given system (you can monitor the local system or a remote one). Each of those objects contains counters. (There are way too many counters to know them all.) Once you have all your counters set up, you can make changes to the way they are displayed. For example, you can change the line colors for each counter to make it easier to determine which line you are watching. You can change the format of the display to a graph, a histogram, or a report (numeric display).
Data Collector Sets allow you to use System-defined sets (there is one for System Diagnostics and one for System Performance) or User-defined sets (which is empty to start with, you literally have to create your own). You can also look at Event Trace Sessions and Startup Event Trace Sessions.

The thing is my job isn't that hardby BeerWhore
After training I've been hitting my numbers like I've worked there for years. I don't have performance nor attitude issues at work.
Monitoring behavior at home would be an issue but I'm actually pretty chill to live with (so I've been told). I'm clean, I make nice food and share it, I'm actually pretty quiet.
There is the factor of my occasional wine/beer binge that I'd need to watch but that's not a bad thing.
Yeah, there are folks at work that would be assholes. And I'd worry that she'd try to "make an example" of me by making things harder on me just to show that I'm not influencing her
Sure. yeah, that's it.by peacewar
Better Interviews Said Key to Exit Polls By WILL LESTER, Associated Press Writer
Sat May 14, 6:39 PM ET
MIAMI BEACH, Fla. - Better training of interviewers to get a proper sample of voters after they cast ballots will be key to improving the performance of exit polls, one pollster who handled the 2004 election surveys said Saturday.
Exit polls on Election Day 2004 overstated support for Democrat John Kerry overall and in many key states, which led to widespread confusion that day about the election eventually won by President Bush.
The exit polls contacted more supporters of Kerry than of Bush because of "the failure of interviewers to follow the selection rate," said Warren Mitofsky, who conducted the exit polls along with Joe Lenski of Edison Media Research
Look beyond APM to unified performance monitoring — TechTarget
ORLANDO, Fla. -- The lack of interoperability among traditional performance monitoring tools means data centers must use -- and pay for -- multiple tools. But movement toward unified performance monitoring could change all that.
