Perfmon alerts - how do I get them to start at startup?

Hi

I have 2 servers, one is running a perfom alert which monitors disk space and sends an email if either server gets below a certain threshold. The alert happily chugs away without eating up much resources, but whenever I reboot, I have to manually start the alert from the perfmon msc - is there any way to automate this? I have tried saving the msc profile and using scheduled tasks to start this on a regular basis, but it only starts the perfmon msc and not the alert. I have also set the perfmon service to auto start

help!

You need PMON a command line tool found in Windows 2000 Resource Kit.

Hi thanks for this - not really sure this is what I need, however, since it seems to be a tool that monitors process info and memory usage, where I need something to start a performance monitor alert automatically following a reboot. The alert works fine, no problems what-so-ever - I just need a way to make the alert start after a reboot

thanks again

From the Above Article: -

****
After you have followed the steps in this article, monitoring starts at its scheduled time and sends alerts when the threshold is exceeded. However, the alert does not automatically restart after every reboot of the computer. To force the alert to restart after a reboot or after logging off and logging back on:
1.      Start System Monitor again, and open the properties of the alert that you created.
2.      On the Schedule tab, change the Stop scan option to After.
3.      Type a large number for the days to scan. The maximum value is 100,000.
4.      Click Start a new scan.
The alert should run continuously, regardless of rebooting the computer, logging off and on, or the date.

•      The LogicalDisk counters are not loaded automatically in Windows 2000. You must install them before you can track free disk space. Also, System Monitor does not display the LogicalDisk data for the fourth disk in Microsoft Windows NT 4.0. Install the latest service pack for Windows NT 4.0.

yes, many thanks! We have since got an application (HostMon) that does that and a whole host of other things. Did try your suggestion before we switched and it worked, so many thanks again!
