PFE Days: Microsoft Irvine office: Thursday, March 24th, 2016: Vital Signs Express featuring the CLUE



AskPFEPlat is in the process of a transformation to the new Core Infrastructure and Security TechCommunity, and will be moving by the end of March 2019 to our new home at (hosted at Please bear with us while we are still under construction!

We will continue bringing you the same great content, from the same great contributors, on our new platform. Until then, you can access our new content on either as you do today, or at our new site Please feel free to update your bookmarks accordingly!

Why are we doing this? Simple really; we are looking to expand our team internally in order to provide you even more great content, as well as take on a more proactive role in the future with our readers (more to come on that later)! Since our team encompasses many more roles than Premier Field Engineers these days, we felt it was also time we reflected that initial expansion.

If you have never visited the TechCommunity site, it can be found at On the TechCommunity site, you will find numerous technical communities across many topics, which include discussion areas, along with blog content.

NOTE: In addition to the AskPFEPlat-to-Core Infrastructure and Security transformation, Premier Field Engineers from all technology areas will be working together to expand the TechCommunity site even further, joining together in the technology agnostic Premier Field Engineering TechCommunity (along with Core Infrastructure and Security), which can be found at!

As always, thank you for continuing to read the Core Infrastructure and Security (AskPFEPlat) blog, and we look forward to providing you more great content well into the future!


Hi all, 

If you guys are in the Irvine, Orange County area, stop by for 2-3 hours of automating the Windows client and server performance troubleshooting using CLUE.

• Have you been manually setting up Perfmon/PAL and Windows Performance Toolkit (WPT a.k.a. WPA/Xperf) to troubleshoot performance issues?

• Have you been automating data analysis using PAL?  How do you scale to 1,000 and 10,000’s of machines?

• Have you been automating .etl data analysis using Xperf -actions?  How do you scale to 1,000 and 10,000’s of machines?

Come and find out how you can automate the data collection, and analysis on the Enterprise by using the “Collection of Logs for the User Experience” (CLUE).
