Leo Borisov (Functional Architect at HP) posted this to a LinkedIn discussion group on LoadRunner.
I just downloaded this document and it looks pretty good, it contains details of the best performace counters to monitor for Windows and UNIX systems and has details of different web servers such as WebLogic, WebSphere, IIS etc.
Leo’s LinkedIn posting which explains how to download the document is reproduced below.
I wanted to draw your attention to the fact that the recently released Service Pack 1 for HP LoadRunner and HP Performance Center includes a “Performance Monitoring Best Practices” book. This is the first installment in the “HP Performance Engineering Best Practices” series that HP Software and Solutions intends to release on the regular basis. We have always recognized the fact that having best practices and methodology would greatly simplify the life of performance engineers and managers, and now we are beginning to fill this need.
The book is available with the SP1 installation. Access it from the product documentation library, or from the Help menu.
