The Resources tab allows you to monitor the system resources on the computer hosting the SQL Server instance as well as what used by SQL Server.

Resource bottlenecks are often the cause of SQL Server performance problems. These bottlenecks can result from poor database application design or point to other system processes using valuable resources needed by SQL Server.
