Can performance monitor be started as a service (It is started at boot up and running at the behind) ?

I have used the performance monitor but cannot find the counter processor queue length and % network utilisation. How can I find it ?

Thank you

Processor Queue Length is found under the System Object. I've never seen % network utilization. You need to determine first your bandwith (ex. 10/100) and then calculate the bytes being used.

PM is not a service in the sense of DHCP or the spooler service. It is a diagnostic tool measuring discrete variables on your systems. Indeed, the processor queue length % is on the system counter. You may want to include the processor % processor time to make sure the processor is not running at high levels continuously (if it was high continuously this will slow down the system and the network). Also include processor: interrupts/sec which measures the rate of service requests from I/O devices. If this increases dramatically and there is not corresponding increase in system activity, you may have a hardware problem. Microsoft's workstation resource kit offers some detailed information about PM as well as some meaty PM enhancements. For network monitoring, add the network monitoring agent located in control panel | networking | services. But if you want PM to work in the background, set up logging so you can collect data over a period of time. You can import logged info. to excel or access for fu

The % network utilization is installed with nt res kit. any exe can start as a service. With the res kit installed, at a command prompt tye

instsrv Perfmon C:\WINNT\system32\Perfmon.exe

To start at boot time, change the reg entry HKLM\software\microsoft\windows\currentversion\run and add a new string. Make the name something like PerfMon and the data c:\winnt\system32\perfmon.exe (or your path to perfmon.exe) and add any switched required.

You now know where processor queue is - to get network % util add the network monitor agent from the NT CD - perfmon now has a network segment option with the % utilization counter.

cheers
