Performance Monitor Question With Windows Servewr 2008

Posted on 2011-03-02

Last Modified: 2012-05-11
We are looking to do some load testing on our Windows 2008 Servers. We would like to collect some statistics (CPU Usage, Memory Usage, etc) on some specific executables. Say, for example an .exe called "thisexecutable.exe"  in our deployed software.

When I go to the "Process" menu item under "available counters" there are a number of services listed (or executables that run as services I guess). There is also an option called "All Instances" .

Question : Is there a way to target specific executables when they run, or will the "All Instances" option get me statistics when "thisexecutable.exe" runs ?
or
Would I need to actually write a performance counter for "thisexecutable.exe" and install it with installutil.exe.

Any help or direction would be greatly appreciated.

Since this is your code you have a great deal of flexibility as you can embed some ETW logic in it.
But here is the MSDN site that talks about all the tools, gives you a SDK, and covers all aspects of "performance monitoring:
