I am using a test build of Windows 2016.

When I open Task Manager, I can see CPU, Memory, and Ethernet information.

However, I didn't see Disk info as usual ( in Windows 10 ).

Is it an expected situation?

    I actually just deleted that system, you can imagine that, under the Performance tab, it has CPU, Memory, Ethernet, but no 'Disk'.

The Disk Counter has been removed from the Performance tab in Windows Server 2012. This is because there is a significant performance impact to collect Disk metrics on a Server due to the overhead Task Manager may cause in querying each Disk IO for each process/disk. Disk metrics are very useful while troubleshooting performance issues on the server. An easy way to check Disk metrics is to use Resource Monitor. Source: Microsoft

To show disk performance metrics in Task Manager

Open the command prompt as administrator and enter following command

diskperf -Y
