I downloaded the most recent version of PAL and am overall very pleased with it. I do have a couple of questions re. the report generated.
When I setup PAL I chose to have all counters analyzed - when the report runs why are there a handful of my counters that show up in the report with no thresholds? The counters without thresholds are:
\Physical Disk(*)\%Disk Time (all of the Phys Disk counters are setup for 3 of the 8 drives on the server - all where SQL Server files are located)
\Physical Disk(*)\Disk Reads/sec
\Physical Disk(*)\Disk Writes/sec
\Processor(*)\%User Time (which is weird because the counter for %Priviledged Time does show up with a threshold)
Also for these counters there are no descriptions about the counter as there are for counters with thresholds.
In the report where it displays information for the 'Processor % Processor Time' counter there are two graphs. The first has data and looks normal - but there is also an empty graph below the populated one. The empty graph has no time line along
the X axis (bottom line). What is the purpose of the second graph? BTW - I just noticed that there are also two graphs (one empty) for the counter 'Processor % Priviledged Time'
