Can I use Perflog to centrally monitor a number of servers across a WAN?
If so what are the network implications?
Can I start this service automatically?
How do I centralise this data into a database?
Where can I find more info?

A 3rd party like :

You'll have to configure Perfmon individually for each server, then import all the charts / reports or whatever into Access / SQL.
This Guardian stuff looks far easier to setup and install, that's all !

Simple, centralized multimedia control

Watch and learn to see how ATEN provided an easy and effective way for three jointly-owned pubs to control the 60 televisions located across their three venues utilizing the ATEN Control System, Modular Matrix Switch and HDBaseT extenders.

Tim, I appreciate that for PERFMON but I'm researching the viability of PERFLOG. Why do you suggest that the Ardent product is a better bet? Is it free?

There are five files in the resource kit:
pdlcnfig.exe
pdh.dll
pdlsvc.exe
perflog.help / perflog.cnt - helpfiles

Windows NT Workstation Resource kit
Dtd 1996 (Maybe this version is older)
