I find that the iostat in Linux gives the average disk queue length different from Window.
Window use Little's Law, but Linux use "weighted # of milliseconds spent doing I/Os" (Last Field in /proc/diskstats) divided by the duration. I have searched in Google but I cannot find any mathematical explanation on this.
So you prefer to drag a component from a toolbox rather than hand code? OK, try this ...
Well, then go spend a lot of money buying Microsoft Expressions, even then it might not do everything that you want. However, you could also spend some money hoping that this PHP plugin for Visual Studio, available from here http://www.jcxsoftware.com/vs.php[^], can do what you want, but as I have not had reason to use that VS plugin, thus, I could not possibly comment.
Even if Visual Studio did not contain a Visual Designer, a ToolBox, etc, it would still be an IDE. All it takes to be an IDE is to have two or more components that are necessary in software development. Any app that offers editing+compiling+debugging IS an IDE. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_development_environment[^]
Judging from the other posts, you are new to PHP and welcome to PHP by the way.
there is no components like the Label, Text, Checkbox, etc just like the way it is there in Visual Studio..
PHP is a Server side scripting langauge and does not have UI components built into the language. You have to still use the HTML UI components and tie in the PHP on the back end to the HTML labels, textboxes, comboboxes, etc.

Personally I prefer Nusphere PHPED over Eclipse, NetBeans, or even Zend Development Environment because I find it a lot more user friendly and Visual Studio like, speaking of which there is also a PHP Visual Studio add-on which let's you develop PHP solutions inside Visual Studio. Take a look at that here:
