How to Have Saved Counter Performance Logs Start on Boot/Startup

    Howdy,

    Problem is that I have setup a couple of performance monitor counter logs on
    my Windows 2000 workstation to monitor 2 Windows 2000 Servers (one PDC and
    one SQL server), but when I reboot my computer the logs do not automatically
    start to log data again. So if I forget to restart them then I loose data.

    I have tried setting the perfmon to start automatically on start-up but it
    still does not start the counter logs, if you have any clues on what I
    should do next, I would greatly appreciate it! All google pulls up is how to
    use Performance monitor, not how to set it to start saved counter logs on
    boot/start-up!

    Thanks again for your time!

    Brian,

    Firstly thanks for the responce!

    Secondly, no, all that does it start Performance monitor and then waits for
    you to add in the counters, but I have saved counters and wish to start
    them, to start a saved counter log, right click on my computer then click on
    manage, then Performance Logs and Alerts, click on counter and there is a
    list of all saved counter logs, then right click on one and Start it.

    Problem is that if my computer reboots for any reason during the night, the
    couter logs are not automatically restarted, and thereby losing all data
    until I restart them manually.

    But can't you find a way of creating shortcut to the counter itself, maybe you
    could create a bat file or something.
    As I don't know what program it is you are talking about, I'm afraid I'm a bit
    lost with your request.

    Brian,

    It is the standard Performance Monitor for Windows 2000, I have tried to get
    it to run via command line without luck, but thanks for the advise anyway
    :)

    Not knowing W2K at all, it still seems to me that there should be
    command-line switches for perflog that begin recording to each desired
    counter log... and that you could put the ones you need in the perflog
    startup.

    Anyone?
