I have been useing the perfance monitor in XP to try and trace a problem.
Could someone tell me what it all means?
As I see it, the blue trace is my CPU useage. It is a reasonably straight line showing a useage of 60/70% of resources.
But what are the green and yellow ones? Green is usualy more or less level at about 2%.
But the yellow one jumps to peaks of over 100%. Usualy about the same time as my computer dumps a program.
Is there any way to keep this on top of my screen? I've been shutting the program to task bar to read the monitor.
I,m getting fed up with getting dumed.

Thanks for any help.

Green = CPU
Blue = Physical Disk
Yellow = Memory
