    Is there a way to see the "current time" of the events that are occurring in a saved perfmon log? I know you can see and select the range of time you want to look at within the file-- but, if you have a large range loaded, can you see what the date/time was at a particular point within that range you're looking at?

    Loving the series -- keep them coming!!!

    @Matador5115: It's easy on Vista & above.  Just hold the mouse pointer over the counter (on the graph) of interest, and a tooltip window will appear with information, including the time.
    NOTE: You may not get all the information in the tooltip if the perfmon window isn't big enough, so make sure perfmon is maximized when you try this.

    Complaint - Concern.

    I watch a lot of videos on this site and your pitch and delivery was good but it was way too much information for me without demos.  I could use smaller doses with demos of live application perfmon tracing to solidify all of this information.

    Thanks (Concerned) follower.

    @WizardX:That's fair.  I'm working on episodes 7 - ? now, so I'll keep this in mind.

    I will say in addition...

    - I definately don't want to attack the messenger but, I've tried to attack system debugging on Windows a few times and I just never have gotten as good at it as I was on UNIX.

    I'm going to watch all of your episodes a few times and see how far it takes me.

    I really appreciate you taking the time to do this... I have the same problem with SQL Server and using Performance Tuning, but that's for another forum...

    Thanks again and keep up the good work.
