Logging Perfmon Data

Raul Gonzalez has started a new series around getting perfmon data into SQL Server.  First up is logging perfmon counters:

Here you have the template I have used to create my Data Collector, you just need to write it down to a XML file and change some of the counters which are related to SQL Server.

When I say MSSQL$MSSQL2016, that is because this counter refer to a named instance called MSSQL2016. If that was the default instance, it’d be just “SQL Server”.

Example: <Counter>\SQL Server:Buffer Manager\Page life expectancy</Counter>

Once you adjust it, you’re good to go.

Click through for a sample data collector set and some instructions on logging counter values.
