Activity not captured by System Monitor (aka perfmon) when using the Log Reader Agent command line execution
Posted on 2011-09-06
When running the LogRead.EXE instead of the SQL2k5 native Log Reader Agent UI, it appears that the System Monitor is not collecting the data points (the values are 0). Is there a way to collect these points?
However, when the Agent UI runs we see the collected data under the SQL Server: Replication Logreader Delivered Cmd/sec and Trans/sec counters. Here is the sample command line that is being executed every 10sec via SQL Job scheduler. As an aside, if anyone knows a way to execute the SQL job less than 10sec via the SQL Scheduler - please inform on it too :)
