The initial set of performance counters described in the previous section is a convenient way to add a machine for monitoring quickly.
You can extend the initial set by adding more counters in the areas you wish to monitor.
To add more performance counters to the selected machine
Performance counters' properties, as well as properties of the graphs and machines, are displayed in the property grid (2) below the graph tree (3). To change any property, select an object (4) and modify any none read-only property (5) in the grid.
Adding and deleting graph, machine, and performance counters operations are also available from the context menu on the graph tree (6)
The selected set of performance counters is stored with the test configuration. After reopening a test, its list of performance counters will be retrieved
Info: Many sources are explaining Windows performance counters, for example:
Note: If you added the performance counters to the test a while ago, they must be valid to work. For example, performance counters on a remote server will work only if the same server name or IP address still exists, and the server is accessible with the saved credentials.
Selecting multiple counters and instances
If multiple counters and multiple instances are selected then a counter will be added for every instance.
