Hi,

I have enabled the Microsoft Perfmon Tool to monitor the performance of Application and Database Server. I've enabled more than 60 counters and logging the monitored data. I want to know, if I enabled more than 60, what would be the server performance. Is Perfmon tool affects any performance. Is tool consumes CPU,Memory etc.

Yes, it will have an effect. How much of one depends not only on the counters but on the frequency that you are logging the events.

I would suggest you try such a trace on one of your testing/development servers to see how much of an impact it has before you set it up on your production server.

Hi,

Thanks for your reply. Actually, i enabled 59 counters to monitor cpu,disk,memory,network,asp.net applications etc. And I cant enabled in testing/development server. The load for these servers are very low. So, I enabled in production. And the frequency for logging is every 1 hour.

And, I cleared the log once a week. I really want to know that perfmon tool use memory/cpu for monitoring the server.

If server hangs or server load is high, how perfmon tool log the values.

I am running 41 measures at a rate of every 5 minutes with no noticeable slowdown.

In addition, I have a Performance Monitor set up remotely at 1 minute with no effect on performance.

If you set it up remotely, it has less of an impact.
