INF: Enabling Disk Performance Counters PSS ID Number: Q100289 Article last modified on 04-23-1994



The information in this article applies to:
- Microsoft Win32 Software Development Kit (SDK) for Windows NT, version 3.1

By default, disk performance counters are not started. Therefore, almost all of the disk metrics obtained will be zero. To enable the disk performance counters, execute the following command and then reboot the system:

diskperf -y

DISKPERF.EXE is located in %SystemRoot%.

The decision to avoid starting disk performance counters by default was made for performance reasons.
