Performance Monitoring of Exchange 2010 During Archiving

I need to track resource utilization of my exchange mailbox servers while I have large numbers of users moving mail items from their mailbox to their archive mailbox.  I would also need to do this when I enable retention policies to monitor and log the utilization when this occurs. The mailboxes are on different databases on different servers.  I anticipate using the performance monitor and creating a data collector set on each of the servers to monitor memory usage, cpu utilization, and disk performance.  The servers are Vmware on blade chassis on fiber SAN.

My questions are:

What sort of performance counters should be added to my collector sets, as there are several for each category. I'm assuming simple is better, something that is displayed in the task manager performance tab.

Essentially this is to provide a report to management and see if we would require additional resources to any of the servers due to the move operations.

As you have stated yes there are several counters to choose from and using Performance monitor is not the most efficent way to accomplish like other 3rd party prodcuts like (solar winds). But below is all of the counters you will need to monitor mailbox database performance. It also includes other roles in case you want to monitor them as well.
