Powershell and Perfmon - A performance story
It turns out there might be something better than the combination of beer and peanuts (at work anyway); using Powershell to gather Performance Monitor (perfmon) metrics! In this session we will tackle gathering all the perfmon counters, storing them and alerting when they reach a defined level. This will be a demo intensive session that will also use SQL and XML components of Powershell. Attendees will leave this session with ideas and examples that they can implement in their jobs immediately. A basic working knowledge of Powershell syntax and commandlets will be assumed.
