What problem(s) if any is the host system experiencing? Or is the requirement to simply observe the listed parameters?

No specific applications (full disclosure) here.

However, I will offer the suggestion (depending on the problems being encountered and/or the parameters to be measured) that multiple tools be used.

Each tool can have various strengths and weaknesses plus some inherent + or - degree of accuracy. If not used properly or understood, making changes could make things worse. Especially if you allow some such tool to make the "adjustments".

You can learn quite a bit about how any given system is working or performing via Task Manager, Resource Monitor, and Process Explorer.

(Process Explorer, Microsoft - free):

You can also look in Reliability History, Event Viewer, and Update History to learn even more about your build and how it is performing.

Getting a sense of what is normal provides you a base from which to determine if, for example, some FPS change, is a problem or not. Or some change will truly make a end user noticeable improvement.

Measurements are indeed important. Understanding what those measurements actually mean along with any changes that happen is more important.

Just my thoughts on the matter.
