Performance Counter Not Included in Results

description

Hello,

I am using the following perfmon counter to collect performance information about my application.

"\Process(_Total)\% Processor Time"

This counter, however, does not appear in the report generated by PAL. Is there a specific configuration (i.e., threshold) that needs to be set in order to include this counter.

Thank you,
Jim

The _Total instance is the sum of all of the process instances and not useful in my opinion.
When identifying a processor issue, use \Processor Information(*)\% Processor Time.
With that said, if you want to include it, then open SystemOverview.xml in a text editor and remove the XML node called EXCLUDE which has the _Total instance for that analysis.
