Read the NT Performance Data Log

By jjjb ·
A year ago, I NT admin left. He had implemented the NT Performance Data Log Service. It is still producing data in a *.csv format. How do we read and format this data in a meaningful manner. Our current admin is not familiar with the output.

Comma Separated Value

CSV stands for Comma Separated Value. You should be able to use Excel to open and format the logs.

format the report

by jjjb In reply to Comma Separated Value

True, but is there any program which will read and format the report. Before our old NT admin left, he had generated reports showing CPU uitilzation by day, etc.

Had he created an access database which you could import the data into?
csv format is the easiest way of importing & exporting data in & out of programmes. It just depends on whether you have the original document or whether you need to create a new one for your data.

No idea. He is long gone and his PC rebuilt for someone else.

I believe he had a program which merged the files and then created a report.

not good news then. How are you at creating an access database to import this file into cos this may be the option for you. You can create one quite easily, give it a try and see what happens.
