Wincheck_counter trouble


#1

Hi All,

i hope someone with a little more Windows commandline experience can help me out. I’m using the wincheck_counter.exe to monitor several performance counters on Windowsservers. I rarely have any trouble getting this to work, but this one is starting to tick me off because i can’t get it to work. In the performance monitor on a Windwos 2008 box i have this counter:

This is a teamed NIC. There are 3 others: TEAM : lan - Intel® PRO 1000 PT Quad Port LP Server Adapter _2 (and so forth)

I want to monitor this nic as follows:

And this is not working. The probleem seems to be in the name of the Instance (-I "TEAM : lan…), and there are quite a few spaces and special characters there. Can anyone tell me how need to escape these characters?

TIA,
Peter

I found out what i was doing wrong… (afraid to say really…)
I forgot an underscore in the Instance name. It wasn’t visible in the performance monitor. D’oh!

Hi Luca,

sorry for the late answer. I found out by starting all over again, just rebuild the command and looked good at what i was doing. Just as they say: Look twice, cut once :smiley:
