Generate System Health Report of your Windows 10/8/7 PC with Perfmon

Most of us take special care to keep our Windows operating system running in top condition. We may simply let our Windows carry out the scheduled automatic maintenance tasks or use some good freeware optimizer software.

If you want to go a step further and find out the state of health of your Windows computer, you can use a built-in tool called Perfmon or Performance Monitor or perfmon.exewe saw how to use Perfmon yesterday.

Generate System Health Report using Perfmon

To generate a performance report of your system, open Run, type perfmon /report and hit Enter. The Performance Monitor will now start analyzing your system state.

Perfmon basically carries out the following checks:

Once the task has been completed, you will be presented with a list of findings.

Once the test is complete, you will also be able to export and save the findings via File > Save As.

The report is exhaustive and rather longish. The problems if any will be highlighted in red so that you can focus on only those issues.

You can use the findings to troubleshoot Windows problems.

See this post if you receive An error occurred while attempting to generate this report, The Data Collector Set or one of its dependencies is already in use error message.
