I've done several years worth of graphics programming, and I must confess, I'm still not very clued-in with advanced Windows API programming. It's borderline embarrassing. That said, I have done the bare essentials a million times, such as event handling, setting up windows + rendering contexts, etc - generally that's all I needed. However, for the next project, I would like to do something different. I'm toying around with the idea of writing a C++ app that monitors system resources, such as CPU core utilisation, memory usage, disk usage, and network traffic. Nothing too elaborate, just something to display pretty graphs as part of the exercise, perhaps via GDI or something equivalent. The only problem is, I'm not quite sure which part of the Platform SDK I should start digging around. So far I have found stuff on Performance Monitor Counters. PMC seems to fit the criteria, although PMC looks like you'd use it for debugging purposes mostly. I'm not asking for solutions, only more resources and the right keywords that point me in the right direction. [Edited by - Tachikoma on April 13, 2010 11:45:20 AM]
