will measure how system resources are being utilized in the system, such as CPU Utilization, Memory Utilization, Disk I/O Utilization and so on. Summary 10:02-10:22 That's it for this demonstration. In this demo, we talked about using Management Consoles, we introduced you to the Microsoft Management Console, we talked about how to add Snap-ins to the Management Console, we talked about how to save a Management Console as a preset, we talked about how to run a Snap-in individually outside of the Management Console, and then we ended this demonstration by talking about how to use predefined Management Consoles such as Computer Management. Viewing System Information 0:00-0:07 In this demonstration we're going to talk about viewing system configuration information. msinfo32 0:08-1:54 There will be many times when you're troubleshooting computer problems that you're going to need to view information about the hardware and the software that are installed in the system so in this demonstration we're going to look at msinfo32 or system configuration. The easiest way to launch this utility is to come down to your search field and just type in "msinfo32"and we see the system information desktop app listed in the search results, let's click on it to launch it. Now msinfo32 is a very useful utility, it allows you to view a lot of information about a lot of different aspects of your system. Now notice that by default when we launch the application the system summary is selected by default and system summary information is displayed over here in the right pane. We view things such as the name of the operating system and the version number. We can view the operating system manufacturer. We can view the system name of the computer, we can see the system manufacturer and model number of the computer. Now this is a VMware virtual machine so the manufacturer shows up as VMware and the system model is VMware virtual platform if you use this utility on a hardware-based system you would see the name, the manufacturer and the model number listed here. We can also view information about the processor and you can view information about the BIOS version on the system as well. Now this is just summary information when you run this app more than likely what you're looking for is more detailed information and that's found over here under Hardware Resources, Componentsand Software Environment. For example if I needed information about how the system resources are being utilized by the hardware components in the system I could expand Hardware Resources and here we can see information such as which IRQs are assigned to which devices. Which I/O ports are being used by different devices and which DMA channels are being used by which devices. IRQ Options 1:55-4:48 Let's go down here to IRQs and when I do I see that for example IRQ 3 is assigned to my COM2 serial port, I see that IRQ 14 and 15 are being used by the IDE interface that's installed on the motherboard on this system. This is the primary IDE channel, this is the secondary IDE channel even though we don't actually have any disks connected to it, the interface is enabled on the motherboard therefore we have to assign an IRQ to it.

Here's our video adapters IRQ usage as well. We can also go up here to I/O and view the I/O addresses that are assigned to each device in the

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
