Customizing the Performance Monitor

In some cases, you may want to monitor several key indicators at the same time and in other cases, you may want to focus on one particular area. To meet the needs of each monitoring session, you can add and remove counters from the Performance Monitor.

To modify the Performance Monitor display:

  1. In the Performance Monitor title bar, click the View Settings icon.

    The Performance Monitor Settings dialog box opens.

  2. In the Show In Graph column, select the counters that you want to display in the Performance Monitor graph view.

    [Note] Note

    For a description of each counter, click the Help icon in the Performance Monitor Settings dialog box.

  3. In the Show In List column, select the counters that you want to display in the Performance Data list.

  4. Set a minimum and maximum value for the counters you selected. The min and max values define the vertical range of the graph band for each counter.

  5. Click OK.

    The Performance Monitor is updated to display only the counters that you selected.

[Note] Note

If you select a type of data that has been disabled in the Profiler Settings, the Performance Monitor will not display a graph for that heading. For more information on changing Profiler settings, refer to Specifying the Type of Information that Will Be Captured.
