Hello again AskPerf! Blake Morrison here to discuss a little known OS tool called TYPEPERF. TYPEPERF is a built-in tool that writes performance data to the command window or to a log file. If you are a command line junkie, love to script, and need to get Performance data from your Workstation or Server, then TYPEPERF is the tool for you. Let's check out its options and some examples. When you type "typeperf /?" at a command prompt, the following appears:
Here are some quick examples:
As you can see, this tool is quite powerful. In terms of scenarios in which you might use this tool, consider a situation where you need to gather a limited set of performance data from 500 servers at 3:00 am when the backup job kicks off. Using TYPEPERF, you can configure this in just a few minutes via batch files and scripts. Don’t forget that you need to either use the –sc switch to limit the number of samples or use CTRL+C within the command window. The links below have more information and examples. Take care!
