Performance Monitor Overview

The Performance Monitor enables you to view real-time and historical performance data of your PeopleSoft systems. The Performance Monitor provides the information that you need to solve immediate performance issues and analyze trends in system performance.

In PeopleTools 8.55, the Performance Monitor is enabled with default settings, but you must configure the Performance Monitor correctly in your PeopleSoft environment by following the configuration instructions described in this PeopleBook. If you plan not to use the Performance Monitor, you must disable the Performance Monitor by following the instructions on disabling Performance Monitor.

For information on disabling Performance Monitor, see Disabling Performance Monitor Agents.

When you have a PeopleSoft application environment running and you have set up the Performance Monitor, you can begin to capture and analyze PeopleSoft performance data.
