Updated: March 28, 2003

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

The Objects performance object consists of counters that monitor logical objects in the system, such as processes, threads, mutexes, and semaphores. This information can be used to detect the unnecessary consumption of computer resources. Each object requires memory to store basic information about the object.

 

Counter Name Description Counter Type

Events

Shows the number of events in the computer at the time of data collection. An event occurs when two or more threads try to synchronize execution. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Mutexes

Shows the number of mutexes in the computer at the time of data collection. Mutexes are executive dispatcher objects that ensure threads are synchronized. Mutexes are used by threads to assure that only one thread is executing a particular section of code. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Processes

Shows the number of processes in the computer at the time of data collection. Each process represents the running of a program. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Sections

Shows the number of sections in the computer at the time of data collection. A section is a portion of virtual memory created by a process for storing data. A process can share sections with other processes. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Semaphores

Shows the number of semaphores in the computer at the time of data collection. Threads use semaphores to obtain exclusive access to data structures that they share with other threads. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

Threads

Shows the number of threads in the computer at the time of data collection. A thread is the basic executable entity that can execute instructions in a processor. This is an instantaneous count, not an average over time.

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT
