Why is PAL analyzing only part of counters in CSV?

Hi,

There are
\PRDSMUSWEB04\Processor(_Total)\% Processor Time \PRDSMUSWEB04\Processor(_Total)\% Privileged Time \PRDSMUSWEB04\Memory\Available Bytes

collected in the csv. But always only the first two items are analyzed. I searched PAL but nothing found.

Can someone tell me what I missed when using PAL v2?

Thanks,

Hi Ansonwoo,

As long as the Quick System Overview threshold file is selected or inherited, then they should be in the report.
PAL compares the counter instances in the counter log to the counter paths in the threshold files selected. Anything that doesn't match is ignored.
If you want to make sure that all counters in the counter log make it into the report, then enable the AllCounterStats feature.

Thank you,

Hi Clint,

Thanks for quick response.

I checked the QuickSystemOverview.xml and figured out that the counter I collected is \Memory\Available Bytes while only \Memory\Available MBytes is set to be collected in the xml. So this is the reason why for it even I checked AllCounterStats box. Looks like it's not easy to add \Memory\Available Bytes.

Anyway I will collect \Memory\Available MBytes instead.

Thanks,

Ah, okay. That makes sense. Thanks for the follow up.
