Greetngs -

I have a bunch of counter data that I've collected over the course of a week from a machine on my network and I'd like to find a better way of viewing / analyzing it than Excel.  :)

Is anyone aware of a "Perfmon data viewer" type tool that would allow me to easily turn counters on/off and view graphs plotted over time?  I'm thinking there must be a tool like this somewhere, maybe I'm wrong.

I'm thinking there must be an easier way to deal with Perfmon data than by importing it into Excel and creating all my own graphs.

Ideas?

Hmmm... I don't know if it works with Perfmon Data... but I was just catching up on some old Windows IT Pro Magazines and found there is a tool from Microsoft that uses related data and does present it much better.  You might want to look into SPA - Server Performance Advisor.  See InstantDoc 94224 at www.windowsitpro.com - you'll need a subscription - and if you don't have one, you should - when I left my day job to be a full time consultant, it's the only magazine I paid for a subscription to - and it's well worth it.

I'll be darned!  Thanks jjdurant - I never used binary captures and therefore, never saw the "Time Range" option in the "Source" tab.

;-)  That makes things nicer.  Thanks.
