When you adjust the time window while viewing counters from a log file recorded on a computer running Windows NT 4.0, the chart window may be cleared.


This issue can occur if you stop and start the counters, which creates a break in the chart.

System Monitor uses a different method for retrieving data from a Windows NT 4.0 performance log than from a Windows 2000 performance log.


To work around this issue, use Windows NT 4.0 Performance Monitor (Perfmon4.exe) included in the Windows 2000 Resource Kit.


Microsoft has confirmed that this is a problem in the Microsoft products that are listed at the beginning of this article.
