Event ID 100: Windows Diagnostics-Performance

Event ID 100: Windows Diagnostics-Performance

Applies To

Windows Server 2008, Windows 7

Cause

Event ID 100 indicates Windows has started up and degradation has been detected.  

Details

While occasional degradation is normal, due to software or hardware device driver updates, if you determine that a particular device or application event is being logged on a regular basis and/or results in a continuation of boot time degradation, chances are that there is a problem. Check with your hardware or software provider to obtain updated device drivers or software.  You may also need to trace the boot process to determine the specifics on what is causing performance issues.   See "Tools for Troubleshooting Slow Boot and Slow Logon" for more information.  

The Event Viewer in Windows Server 2008 and Windows 7 includes a new category of event logs called Applications and Services Logs, which includes a host of Windows Performance Diagnostic subcategories which track information such as boot time, standby, hibernate and system shutdown. The task category of boot performance spans the event range .detailed below.

Resolution
Tools for Troubleshooting Slow Boots and Slow Logons

Investigate the root cause of devices or applications which impact slow system boot issues.
Using Windows Performance Analysis Tools
Windows Performance Tools are designed for analysis of a wide range of performance problems
including application start times, boot issues, deferred procedure calls and interrupt activity
(DPCs and ISRs), system responsiveness issues, application resource usage, and interrupt storms.
