This seems like such a novice question, but I cannot figure out what happened to the Process Counters in Perfmon between Server 2003 and Server 2008 and I need them ASAP.
I've attached an image to illustrate what I am looking for...

I saw this on a quick google search, but I can't figure out how to schedule collection of resource monitor data to capture point-in-time process activity.

from the same link...

Data Collector Sets
An important new feature in Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor is the Data Collector Set, which groups data collectors into reusable elements for use with different performance monitoring scenarios. Once a group of data collectors is stored as a Data Collector Set, operations such as scheduling can be applied to the entire set through a single property change.

You can schedule repeated collection of a Data Collector Set to create logs, load it in Performance Monitor to see the data in real time, and save it as a template to use on other computers.

Windows Reliability and Performance Monitor also includes default Data Collector Set templates to help you begin collecting performance data immediately.

That's good that it says that, but I don't see how to do it at all.
It creates a report that gives overalls and averages.  I want to know point-in-time usage and graph it.

I'm sure there is a way to do it, as I can't imagine M$ making this product less than it was...
But their document saying that it CAN be done, doesn't tell me HOW it's done.

I solved it myself.

The problem was the DLL was disabled for some reason (unexplained) and the ExCtrLst application from the Windows 2000 Resource Kit was able to re-enable it (and a few others).
