Counter

Usage and possible solution.

LogicalDisk\% Free Space

This counter measures the percentage of free space on the selected logical disk drive. If this falls below 15 percent, it means that you could face running out of free space for the OS or Data on that disk.

Solution would be to add more Disk space or Disk.

PhysicalDisk\% Idle Time

This counter measures the percentage of time the disk was idle during the sample interval. If this falls below 20 percent, the disk system is saturated.

Solution would be to replace current disk system with a faster one.

PhysicalDisk\Avg. Disk Sec/Read or Write

This counter measures the average time in seconds, it takes to Read or Write data to the disk. If number is larger than 25 milliseconds (ms), the disk system experiences latency when it is Reading or Writing to the disk.

Solution would be to replace current disk system with a faster one.

PhysicalDisk\Avg. Disk Queue Length

This counter indicates how many I/O operations are waiting for the hard drive to become available. If the value is larger than two times the number of spindles of Disk, it means that the disk itself may be the bottleneck.

Solution would be to replace current disk system with a faster one.

Memory\Available Mbytes

This counter measures the amount of physical memory, in megabytes available for running processes. If this value is less than 5 percent of the total Physical RAM, that means there is insufficient memory and that can increase paging activity.

Solution would be to Add additional RAM.

Memory\Pages per Second

This counter measures the rate at which pages are read from or written to the disk to resolve hard-page faults. If the value is greater than 1,000, as a result of excessive paging, there may be a memory leak.

Solution would be to check RAM, if possible add additional RAM.

Processor\% Processor Time

This counter measures the percentage of elapsed time that the processor spends executing a non-idle thread. If the percentage is greater than 85 percent, the processor is over utilized.

Solution Server requires a faster processor. Add additional Processor if motherboard supports or replace it with faster CPU.

Processor\% User Time

This counter measures the percentage of elapsed time that the processor spends in user mode. If this value is high, the server is busy with the application

Solution Server requires a faster processor. Add additional Processor if motherboard supports or replace it with faster CPU.

System\Processor Queue Length

This counter indicates the number of threads in the processor queue. The server does not have enough processor power if the value is more than two times the number of CPUs for an extended period of time.

Solution Server requires a faster processor. Add additional Processor if motherboard supports or replace it with faster CPU.

Network Interface\Bytes Total/Sec

This counter measures the rate at which bytes are sent and received over each network adapter, including framing characters. The network is saturated if you discover that more than 70 percent of the interface is consumed.

Solution would be you need to carefully check network design, upgrade Network Interface card with higher speed NIC, upgrade network Infrastructure if possible.
