Performance Counters

Apr 30, 2014 at 1:44 PM
I just started to look at the Cache Manager and I really like what you have done.

I am hoping you can help with a newbie question. If I have Performance Counters enabled how/where can I either view them or get access to them?

Hi Jim,

To access the performance counters you just have to start Perfmon and select the CacheManager instances.
Start Perfmon.exe from Windows/Run for example.

Click on the green '+' in the main screen and look for .Net CacheManager (should be near the top of the list).

Then select the instances and performance counters you want to monitor.
If there are no instances shown, you might have to start your app first. You might have to restart Perfmon, too, to refresh it sometimes...

Also change the view type to Report instead of Line diagram helps see the real numbers...
