I don't know of any specific documentation. I would mention the
TaskManager as the first place I would look (Ctrl+Shift+Esc, or right
click on the task bar).
You can customize the columns that it shows in the process view, so you
can get an idea if something is paging, how much I/O it is using, etc.

I'm sure there are other better tools, but this one is pretty easy to
get to, and shows quite a bit.
