I have been using PAL (Performance analysis tool) to analyse perfmon logs for server performance specific to SharePoint.

Does SharePoint 2010 come with any built-in performance monitoring? I know the health analyser does some monitoring, but does it cover system resources?

What about SharePoint 2007?

SharePoint 2010 has an optional free download called the SharePoint Administration Toolkit. This download includes some performance monitoring in SharePoint Diagnostic Studio.

I don't know about 2007.

SharePoint 2010 has web analytics and administrative reports which produces some of this information out of the box.
