How do I collect performance trending data, commonly used by Altiris Support Services, in a format that can be sent to Altiris Support Services?
Often in trying to troubleshoot performance issues, it is very helpful to have a basic set of performance counters. Microsoft has a performance monitor tool that does real-time monitoring of a system. In addition to a real-time display of these counters in a grid, a perfmon counter can be created to collect this data in the background over time. The counters are saved to a Binary log file (.blg) which can sent to Altiris Support Services.
