The Performance Monitor Wizard simplifies the gathering of performance monitor logs. It configures the correct counters to collect sample intervals and log file sizes. This wizard can create logs for troubleshooting operating system or Exchange server performance issues.
If you are troubleshooting a performance issue or an issue that looks like a memory leak, the objects that Performance Monitor should log include but are not limited to the following items.Memory resource issues:
Cache Memory Objects Paging file Process Processor System Terminal Services (if a Terminal Server)
For all other resource issues, add additional counters:
Logical disk NBT Connections Network interface Physical disk Redirector Server Server work queues Thread (do NOT capture if a terminal server) All Terminal Server counters (if a Terminal Server) All Protocol counters bound to network adapters
Physical Disk counters are present by default on Windows 2000.
