Enable "Show Advanced Counters"


Topic Last Modified: 2011-12-05

This topic explains how to use Registry Editor to enable the "Show Advanced Counters" option.

Incorrectly editing the registry can cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Problems resulting from editing the registry incorrectly may not be able to be resolved. Before editing the registry, back up any valuable data.

To perform this procedure, the account that you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Server Administrator role
  • Local Administrators group for the target server

For more information about permissions, about delegating roles, and about the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.

  1. Connect to the server by using Remote Desktop, and then log on by using an account that has local administrative access.

  2. Start Registry Editor.

  3. Locate the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\CurrentControlSet\Services\ESE\Performance registry subkey.

  4. Right-click Performance, point to New, and then click DWORD Value.

  5. Type Show Advanced Counters to name the new value.

  6. Double-click Show Advanced Counters.

  7. In the Value data box, type 1, and then click OK.

  8. Exit Registry Editor.

  9. After you make the registry setting, restart Performance Monitor (perfmon.exe) to see the additional counters.
