Hi All Do you know of any webparts which displays server-based information?? I think I can create a site for admins, which displays the information in webparts! I would like to avoid software to be installed on my laptop for server information. – neo269 Aug 23 '10 at 13:45

Assuming you already know how to write a web part, it is just a matter of querying the information you are interested in using WMI.

Plenty of examples on Google.

Yes you can use the PerfMon api under the System.Diagnostics.PerformanceCounter namespace. Through this you can get all the desired information of the server where this web part would be hosted.

Just launch the Performace MMC on your machine (RUN->PerfMon) and look for the right counter name.

I think Sahil Malik has done a cool video aroud the same. Just google it out!
