Correlate a Trace with Windows Performance Log Data
Topic Status: Some information in this topic is preview and subject to change in future releases. Preview information describes new features or changes to existing features in Microsoft SQL Server 2016 Community Technology Preview 2 (CTP2).
Using SQL Server Profiler, you can open a Microsoft Windows performance log, choose the counters you want to correlate with a trace, and display the selected performance counters alongside the trace in the SQL Server Profiler graphical user interface. When you select an event in the trace window, a vertical red bar in the System Monitor data window pane of SQL Server Profiler indicates the performance log data that correlates with the selected trace event.
To correlate a trace with performance counters, open a trace file or table that contains the StartTime and EndTime data columns, and then click Import Performance Data on the SQL Server Profiler File menu. You can then open a performance log, and select the System Monitor objects and counters that you want to correlate with the trace.
