To start Resource View

  • Click Start, click in the Start Search box, type perfmon, and press ENTER. Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor will start with the Resource View display.

Additional considerations

  • You can also start Resource View in its own window by typing perfmon /res and pressing ENTER in the Start Search box or at a command prompt.

  • If Resource View does not display real-time data when Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor starts, click the green Start button in the toolbar.

    • If you are prompted with the following message, select Take control of the session.

      The Windows Kernel Trace provider is already in use by another trace session. Taking control of it may cause the current owner to stop functioning properly.

      If access is denied, you are running Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor with insufficient credentials. Log on or run the program as a member of the Administrators group.
