Auto Performance Monitor Data Collection

By Gilbert ·
I need to be able to collect Permformance Monitor log data during off hours. How can I schedule this collection? I know the RK Tools has something that may work, but found the documentation incomplete and contradictory. I don't have the RK, but do have a TechNet subscription.

Windows NT Server 4.0 SP6a.

My answer is from The Windows NT and Windows 2000 Answer Book by John Savill ISBN 0-201-60636-4

NT Resource Kit Ships with PerfTool directory
copy
%NTreskit%\PerfTool\LogTools\pdlcnfig.exe, pdh.dll, pdlsvc.exe, perflog.hlp and perflog.cnt to%systemroot\system32

Run PDLCNFIG to install the service
set the service "StartUp" to run automatically in Control Panel Services.

The AT command to start and stop the service based on time
at \\computername 7:00 /every:m,t,w,th,f "net start Performance Data Log"

at \\computername 4:30 /every:m,t,w,th,f "net stop Performance Data Log"

I have pdlsvc running fine. Now how can I controll when it runs? I want it to collect data during selected time periods. The only two options are manual and automatic. Manual requires someone to start it and automatic runs on system boot. I want to collect data only during selected time periods.
