Performance counters problem on non-english Windows


I need to create a dialog like the 'Add Counters' dialog box in
perfmon. I'm using the System.Diagnost ics namespace class in .NET and I've
managed to do it.

The problem arises when I'm using such dialog box on a non-English Windows
OS (I'm currently testing on Spanish WinXP Professional).

I'm noticing that on non-English Windows OS there are some categories whose
counters are being displayed in English and not in the non-English language.
These particular categories are those whose category name in English is
exactly equal to that of the non-English OS language.
For e.g: if "Processor" category is translated "Procesador " in Spanish then
counters are returned in Spanish
but if "ASP.NET" category remains "ASP.NET" in Spanish, then the
counters are returned in English.
I've searched the registry
(HKLM\Software\ Microsoft\WinNT \XurrentVersion \PerfLib) and found that on the
non-English Windows these counters can be found in the non-english language.
Therefore the problem lies in the .NET functions that I'm using to retrieve
the counters for a particular performance category.

I'm using PerformanceCoun terCategory.Get Instances() and
PerformanceCoun terCategory.Get Counters() to obtain the instances and
counters related to a performance category. I've also tried using
PerformanceCoun terCategory.Rea dCategory() (with the
InstanceDataCol lectionCollecti on) but remained the same problem.

Anyone can help?

Thanks in advance,

Hi, I've been working with the EIF for a few days now. One of the default event sinks provided is the WMI. I've played around a bit and can send events to the WMI. My question here centers on performance counters and the WMI. Is there any way to increase a performance counter in the WMI through the EIF or am I barking up the wrong tree (I know that .NET has other classes which allow you to manipulate performance counters)?

Hi... We're looking at moving an ASP app from IIS 5 to IIS 6. In general things seem to be working okay, but there are some oddities around the edges. One of those unanticipated changes has to do with the new process model and the option to have more than one worker process per web instance. We found that each worker process has its own Application() state and anything your app puts there/uses gets a new copy for every worker...

Hello! I am trying to write some code to access performance counters on a remote machine. Ideally, I would like to add a machine to a tree control (like the "Servers" view in the .NET IDE) and prompt the user to put in a username/password for that machine. I'm not too familiar with the security model involved here, and was hoping someone either has come across this before or could point me in the right direction. Thanks in advance!

Hi Has anybody had any experience of ASP.Net performance counters not updating. In the performance monitor application when I try to add the groups ASP.NET and ASP.NET Applications the counters all show 0. In addition, ASP.NET Applications does not show any of the ASP.NET instances that are running on the computer. The other counters for example % processor time work fine. The problem machine is a test server running Win2003. ...

Some performance counters are PerformanceCounterCategoryType.MultiInstance. Many of these occur once for each running app. If for example myapp has three at the same time myapp shows up three times as myapp#1, myapp#2, myapp#3. How can myapp look at performance counters and know which instance is it's own counters? Is there a way to get a processid or something from the process counter data? Thanks.
