Dual and Quad Core CPU Monitoring in different Windows Versions


I am about to be starting a project which will be determining the most efficient windows version for multicore processing. The project will be testing windows xp, vista, 7 and 8 consumer preview using both an Intel Core2 E6600 and Q6600 CPU in the same hardware setup.

The project I will be working on I am hoping to be very much like the one in this like here:

My question is for advice and help on how I can go about actually monitoring a CPU in the way that is described in the link, what tools I would need to get me going on my project.

I would really love to be able to get results for database transaction times, or get the cycles for encoding a file, but haven't done this type of work before.

If anyone has any knowledge of what I mean here and could help get me started off I would greatly appreciate the advice.

Thanks in advance
