Monitoring performance from the command line

In addition to using the Performance graphical interface, you can use the following command line utilities:

  • Logman manages and schedules performance counter and event trace log collections on local and remote systems.

  • Perfmon allows you to open a Performance console configured with the System Monitor ActiveX control and Performance Logs and Alerts Service.

  • Relog extracts performance counters from performance counter logs into other formats, such as text file (tab delimited), text file (comma delimited), binary-BIN, or SQL.

  • Tracerpt processes event trace logs or real-time data from instrumented event trace providers and allows you to generate trace analysis reports and CSV (comma-delimited) files for the events generated.

  • Typeperf writes performance counter data to the command window, or to a supported log file format.

  • Lodctr registers new Performance counter names and Explain text for a service or device driver, and saves and restores counter settings and Explain text.

  • Unlodctr removes Performance counter names and Explain text for a service or device driver from the system registry.

For more information about incorporating these Performance commands into your Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI), see "Part One: Operating System Performance" in the System Performance and Troubleshooting Guide, available at the Microsoft Windows Resource Kits Web site.
