WINDOWS SYSTEM RESOURCE MANAGER - WINDOWS SERVER 2003
Description: Windows System Resource Manager (WSRM) is a feature of Windows Server 2003, Enterprise and Datacenter editions. Using WSRM, administrators can control how CPU resources are allocated to applications, services, and processes. Managing these resources improves system performance and reduces the chance that these applications, services, or processes will interfere with the rest of the system. WSRM also creates a more consistent and predictable experience for users. WSRM is an improvement in resource management that is included in Windows Server 2003, that supports the Microsoft Dynamic Systems Initiative (DSI).
The aim of Windows System Resource Manager is to ensure that system resources are available to processes, users, Remote Desktop Services sessions, or Internet Information Services (IIS) application pools (collectively called workloads). If unmanaged, these workloads can contend for and exhaust the system resources. However, there are situations in which Windows System Resource Manager is not an appropriate management solution or cannot guarantee sufficient resources to server workloads.
Scoping the Issue:

Data Gathering: In all instances, collecting either MPS Reports with the General, Internet and Networking, Business Networks and Server Components diagnostics, or a Performance-oriented MSDT manifest must be done. If you are experiencing issues with installing WSRM, you will also need to get the SETUPAPI.LOG file in c:\windows and send it in for review.
