I (on my companies behalf) have looked into these types of tools for the 
same reasons only on a grander scale. We're looking for a performance 
monitoring tool that can run on a remote desktop and monitor (with 
configurable alert thresholds) an "end user experience", complete with 
network latency, database access times, gui display, disk i/o, mem 
swaping, etc.

So far all we've come up with are glorified IP traffic analyzers. The sort 
of thing you could write a script to do. I have found nothing that will 
give you the detail you (and I) are looking for.

Please let me know if you find something along these lines. Unfortunatly 
I'm dealing with Windows clients, so recompiling code isn't an option.
