PerfMonitor is pretty useful for the following:
- to identify the performance bottlenecks of a system
- to monitor a program for cache-miss rate or mis-predicted branches
- as a hardware-level CPU comparison tool, comparing the key parameters of different CPUs runnning the same benchmark.
PerfMonitor 220.127.116.11 can be downloaded from this link.
Note that, you will need Administrator rights to run PerfMonitor, if you are running Windows XP/2000/NT4/Vista systems.
