Chapter 22. Documenting a Windows Server... > Baselining Records for Documentation...

Baselining Records for Documentation Comparisons

Baselining is a process of recording the state of a Windows Server 2008 R2 system so that any changes in its performance can be identified at a later date. Complete baselining also pertains to the overall network performance, including WAN links, but in those cases it might require special software and tools (such as sniffers) to record the information.

A Windows Server 2008 R2 system baseline document records the state of the server after it is implemented in a production environment and can include statistics such as memory use, paging, disk subsystem throughput, and more. This information then allows the administrator or appropriate IT resource to determine at a later date how the system is performing in comparison to its initial operation.
