Usage - Overview
The built-in general layout provides a good starting point for an investigation into system problems, covering typical system metrics and information. Multiple connection methods are available, and it is possible to control how data is collected and when the display is updated. Context menus allow options to be quickly modified.
To ensure fast and easy problem diagnosis, some elements can be configured to drill down to another panel that provides more detailed information. For smaller elements, a sizing feature allows a single element to be expanded to use all the available space.
Some elements have additional options and capabilities specific to that element type. Find out more about working with...
For situations where the information presented by ServerInternals is needed by another application, the displayed view, or the details for a single element, can be extracted to the clipboard or files as required.
While it is expected that ServerInternals will be used as an interactive tool, it can also used in a non-interactive fashion to "keep an eye on" a system at other times. To support this, the desktop provides a head-up display mode that allows information to be presented in the background while other tasks are carried out. Alternatively, if a separate, dedicated computer is available, it can be run as a screensaver.
