Perfwiz (!)

Yet another one minute blog post. That took four.

Perfwiz is a tool that configures Perfmon (Performance Monitor) counters for you, based on the settings you give to a functional yet adorable little wizard. The output can be useful in troubleshooting performance problems, memory leaks, and in baselining and testing.

You just run the wizard once to configure it, hit Start, then run it again when you want to stop the log and harvest the data. The logs are viewable in Perfmon, which brings up an interesting point – if you know of a better way of reading counter logs than Perfmon, please share it!

Download Perfwiz here – WGA validation is required, so you know it must be good.
