Creating a Simple Counter List in PAL (Performance Analysis of Logs)

In my previous post, I talked about how implement the counters in Windows 2003.  However I went about getting the list of counters from PAL the long way.  Kind of feel a bit stupid about this now, but Clint (PAL Creator), pointed out we can do this directly in the tool.  I had looked around for it in few locations, expect the obvious.

  1. Open PAL.
  2. Go to Threshold File.
  3. Click Export to Perfmon Template File.
  4. Click OK in SQL Instance Dialog Box.
  5. Change the Save as Type to “Logman Files (*.txt)”.
    No more manual hacking and slashing.  (Thanks Clint).
