Anyone created a comprehensive template file?

It's a laborious process creating a template file that analyses a large number of counters. I have made one with about 50 counters in it, and that took a long time. And I don't know what thresholds to put in for most of them.

Has anyone made so useful template files that thay'd like to share please? Especially I'm interested in monitoring webservers running .net and sql server machines.

PAL v2.x ships with an ASP.NET threshold file, but admittedly it doesn't have much in it. The SQL Server threshold files are quite extensive. What do you think they are missing?

If you want all of the counters in a counter log to show up in the report, then use the Process all counter stats feature (AllCounterStats) on the Output Options tab.
