Analysis of "System" process?

Aug 3, 2010 at 12:49 AM

I noticed recently that the system process gets some analysis as part of "Excessive Processor Utilization by Processes" in System Overview template. However...

I don't see the System process (counter) get included/shown with the graphs under the mentioned analysis.

And I was wondering whether we give enough of an analysis (or threshold checking) on the System process. For example:

See Mark Russinovich's post about a performance issue that required investigating the System process further:

Suggest add System process to the graphs at the least and maybe evaluate it against a specific threshold?
