Correlating a Trace with Windows Performance Log Data

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.
