Release Notes

Perfmon Log Translator Tool (PLT) tool translates perfmon logs captured in other spoken languages and translates them to another spoken language such as English. This allows tools such as the PAL tool to process perfmon logs since PAL requires English perfmon logs.

This tool is written by Sven Haubold ( with Lionel Pénuchot ( as a contributor.

Help Wanted: If you are willing to translate performance counters to/from spoken languages, then feel free to modify the XML files of this tool and post them back to this web site in the Discussions section.

Source Code: This tool is being posted to the PAL tool web site in order to assist users with perfmon logs captured in non-English languages. Therefore, the source code for this tool is not required to be publish. With that said, we plan on publishing source code for this tool soon.

Reviews for this release

Ist there a way to support wildcards during tranlation. For example the SQL Server:Database performance counters are DB specific. This means they contain the Database name. That makes it hard to translate, because you have to know the DB Names before. Is there a chance the add this? I could help to implement this.

Great tool! There's a bug in the translation from Dutch nl-NL where the processor counter object is shown as processsor (three s). This is also valid for some counters itself. There is no error in the nl-NL xml file. PAL will then skip these counters, so analysis is not possible.

Excellent for analysing perfmon data and filtering it out and presenting it in a easy to use chart.
