Tools to test OS performance
I'm looking for suggestions/advice on what tools can help test for performance of Operating Systems (Windows and Mac). For example, monitor for performance stats (cpu, mem, disk usage) before and then after a certain agent (i.e. security software) is loaded on a system. I am aware of PerfMon on windows. I am open to all and any suggestions and any help/advice is appreciated.
Thank you in advance.
Moreover you will be able to use Apache JMeter load testing capabilities to conduct the required load onto the operating system under test.
