I was just given a new XP computer at my work. Want to set up some Performance Monitoring counter logs. Want them in CSV format so that I can put them in my SQL Server. When I try to do this I find that the monitored field comes out as “  “ (nothing). I could do this on my Windows 2000 machine. I set the “run as” to myself, after the default did not work. I suspect that I do not have the security settings right. I can see this data if I look at the System Monitoring plot.
What are the security requirements for Performance Monitoring logs?

Thanks,

I think you need to be at least a Power User to be able to access the logs.  See if your admin will give those rights to your system.  He just needs to add you to the Power Users Group.

BTW:  here is a very good site explaining the setup and use of the logs...
