Do you know what to request if someone wants more RAM and processors on a VM or a PC?

A “Too slow” is not enough info.​​​

Request an image of the “Resource Monitor”

Then after you decide there is justification:

•           Do a typical action – take a new image or baseline.

•           give the ​​additional resources e.g. Ram and processors….

•           Do the typical action again – take another image of the “Resource Monitor”

•           If there is some improvement, reply “done” (otherwise reply “not done”)


Note: An ideal email subject prefix for more resources would be e.g. “Performance issue – “Machine name”


Figure: Use “Resource Monitor” prior to allocating more RAM on a VM

            Figure: If you see something like this, pass their request :-)
