I am using the wonderful PAL tool to interpret Windows counters on nine SQL Server
clusters (five 2000 and four 2005) .
PAL produces useful output but it takes a very long time to do so.
Is there any way, short of just not collecting counter data, that I can reduce the output
that PAL will produce? For instance, I started PAL crunching on some logs today at
12:00 and now it is after 4:00 and PAL is not finished. PAL is producing many
individual graphs that I will not use, such as eight instances of ProcessVirtual_Bytes,
eight instances of ProcessWorking_Set, ProcessIO_Data_Operations_sec, etc. From
1:11 on the majority, but not all, of the graphs PAL produces I will not use. Is there
any way that I can get PAL to produce just the sub set of graphs that I want to use?
