Detail

 

By default, NPM will let you monitor the CPU and Memory Utilization of a Server or any networking device when the CPU and Memory option is checked. This provides the value as it would appear in Task Manager or on the Command Line of your networking device(s).  

In addition, NPM allows you to monitor the Physical Memory and Virtual Memory, which is located under the Volume Utilization option, This provides information about the Physical / Virtual Memory as a Disk or Volume. This can be quite useful for users trying to monitor Pagefile or Swap Disk Usage.
