Two errors from PAL analysis of an IIS log

description

I am seeing two errors from a PAL analysis of an IIS log, when using the IIS.XML threshold file (dated 10/22/07). I would be glad to provide the PAL logs and other information as needed. The same analysis of a very similar IIS log file from the same server works OK.
 
**Error #1 **
[11/29/2007 5:17:02 PM] [QueryCounterInstanceData] ERROR Number: -2131622320
[11/29/2007 5:17:02 PM] [QueryCounterInstanceData] ERROR Description: Error parsing query: SELECT clause: Syntax Error: unknown field '\Server01\Process(w3wp#6)\Handle Count'.
Note: This error appears in the PAL.LOG file
 
which is followed by
 
Error #2
C:\Program Files\PAL\PAL.vbs(2418, 5) Microsoft VBScript runtime error: Type mis
match: 'UBound'
Note: This error does not appear in the PAL.log file - it shows up a the command prompt when the script halts. I noticed another posting about this issue and the resolution, however I didn't quite follow the explanation.
 
Supporting information:
PAL.vbs v1.1.7
OS - Windows XP SP2
WSH 5.6 installed

No response from the users in over 6 months, so assuming this is resolved.

If you are using the exported perfmon log files in the tool, then I've seen errors like this, but only when the counter never really existed on the computer where the perfmon template was used. In your case, the Process object is on all computers, so I don't know why you would get that error. If the log is small enough, then email me directly (clinth@microsoft.com) and I will debug it.

Thanks,

I'm still looking for someone to send me a perfmon log with this error, so I can debug/fix this. If you get this error, then please send it to me at clinth@microsoft.com. Thanks.

This might be fixed in v1.1.9. I added extra error handling in this release for the related functions of this. If not, please send me the perfmon log at clinth@microsoft.com.
