Configuring the Windows performance counter

The Windows performance count can be arbitrarily collected. Add the performance counter set name to the WhaTap server monitoring configuration file.

  • The performance counter set name can be retrieved.

    Windows Powershell
    Get-Counter -ListSet *
  • A performance counter set can be added in the configuration file.

    Windows Powershell
    Add-Content -Path "C:\Program Files\WhatapInfra\whatap.conf" -Value "performance.counter.$(Get-Date -uformat %s)=Performance counter set name to view"
  • In Analysis > Metrics Search, the added performance counter can be searched by category performance_counter_{performance counter set name}.


To apply the changes, restart the server.
