Creating Active Directory Perfmon Counters

Sep 19, 2010 at 2:16 AM

Created an Active Directory XML Perfmon template from PAL, imported into Perfmon Data Collector set on a Domain Controller and ran for 18 hours. The resulting report said "AllCounterStats: False" im the Tool Parameters section. Does this mean for some reason I did not collect all the necessary counters? I want to create as complete a report as possible. How long should I run a baseline on a DC to get started, 24 hours?
PAL 2.03_x64 on Windows Server 2008R2.

AllCounterStats is not an indicator that you are missing counters. AllCounterStats is a feature of PAL that allows you to get charts and stats for every counter in the perfmon log that is not specified in the threshold file. It is useful for when you have third party counters in the log that PAL is not aware of.
