Use a Windows NT Server 4.0 Performance Monitor settings file

Updated: January 21, 2005

Applies To: Windows Server 2003, Windows Server 2003 R2, Windows Server 2003 with SP1, Windows Server 2003 with SP2

To use a Windows NT Server 4.0 Performance Monitor settings file

  • At a command prompt, type

    perfmon.exefile_name

    where file_name is the name of the settings file you want to use.

Notes

  • This procedure will open a Performance console configured with the settings from the Windows NT Server 4.0 version of Performance Monitor settings file.

  • This procedure works for the following types of Windows NT Server 4.0 version of Performance Monitor settings files: chart (.pmc), report (.pmr), alert (.pma), and log (.pml). Workspace (.pmw) files that were created with Windows NT Server 4.0 version of Performance Monitor are not fully compatible with System Monitor. Only one of the views previously saved in the workspace will be available in System Monitor.

  • To display the Windows NT Server 4.0 settings file in System Monitor, the system temporarily converts the file for use with System Monitor but discards the converted version after the console starts. If you want to save the settings file for permanent use with System Monitor, type the following command:

    perfmon.exe /HTMLFILE:converted_filesettings_file

    where converted_file is the name you are giving to the converted file and settings_file is the name of the original Windows NT Server 4.0 settings file.

Information about functional differences

  • Your server might function differently based on the version and edition of the operating system that is installed, your account permissions, and your menu settings. For more information, see Viewing Help on the Web.
