DEP b. XPS d. LOGO Completion Complete each statement. 27. A(n) baseline is a set of performance indicators captured when system performance is acceptable. 28. Performance indicators are often called counters because they display values for system characteristics. 29. 30. 31. Performance Monitor is an MMC snap-in that is used to monitor system performance indicators. Resource Monitor provides real-time monitoring of the most common system performance indicators. Performance Monitor is a tool within the Performance Monitor utility that allows you to visually display the data generated by counters.
