Yes - just start Perfmon on your machine and using the dialog ADD the counters FROM ANOTHER MACHINE
yes you can. Just connect to the remote PC and run permon.

1) click on Performance logs and alerts
2) right click on Counter Logs and create New Log settings (give it a name)
3) add the counters you want
4) select a time frame to capture the settings in the Schedule tab
5) let it go and come back when its finished.

Job done (hopefully).

yes as KCTS said also you can do that from your PC, simply ammend my instructions to Add Objects instead of Add Counters. From there you can choose which PC to capture from.
