Do you sometimes notice high CPU or memory usage on your EC2 instances or WorkSpaces? Do you know what’s causing it? For how long and how frequently?
It’s easy to find a rogue process in Task Manager and stop it, but is it a part of the pattern?
Enter a century-old tool -> Performance Monitor.
Sometimes, the rogue process is an application or a service which spikes at random times for random intervals. In such cases, we need to set up a Data Collector in the Performance Monitor and use it to track resource usage over a period of time. Logs are then replayed and root cause identified.
