Argent AT – All Versions


Friday, 15 July 2016


The ‘Logical Disk’ performance counter may be missing on a Windows 2003 Server

Technical Background

This is a Microsoft Issue

To maintain the integrity of the performance data and to improve reliability, the Microsoft performance monitoring API disables any performance DLL that returns data in the incorrect format, causes an unhandled program fault, or takes too long to return the performance data


Open the registry editor and navigate to the following registry key:

HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\PerfDisk\Performance\Disable Performance Counters

If ‘Disable Performance Counters’ is set to 1 , change this to 0 (Decimal)
