Windows Monitor complements Agileload by extending the range of data collection and monitoring options available, by adding the ability to monitor and record performance data from Microsoft Windows target systems. It enables the creation of Collectors that can include a number of monitoring and data collection options. Results data generated by Windows Monitor Collectors can be displayed and analyzed to help to identify bottlenecks that occur on target Windows Systems during Job-runs.
A Windows account
that can retrieve performance counters and registry information
from the server on which Windows is running. This account must have
access to the server's performance monitor counters, and read
access to the server's Windows registry (HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows
(eg: To view performance counters, a user must be a member of the local "Performance Monitor Users" group, "Performance Log Users" group, "Administrators" group, or equivalent)
(eg: A user in the "Administrators" group may not be able to view performance counters. Use an account that is member of the "Performance Monitor Users" group)
Windows XP and Windows 2000: The Administrator or users in the "Administrator" group can view performance counters without restriction.
Open the "Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Local Security Policies" ("Settings\Control Panel\Administrative Tools\Domain Security Policies"), select the "\Local Policies\Security Options" option in the tree view:
Registry" and "Net Logon" services must be started on
the monitored windows system.
If a firewall is running on the monitored windows system, TCP ports 139 and 445 must be opened (eg: SMB protocol).
Under "Windows Server 2008", if the windows
firewall is activated, open the "Settings\Control
Panel\Administrative Tools\Server Manager", select the
"Configuration\Windows Firewall with Advanced Security\Inbound
Tules" entry in the tree view and activate the "File and
Printer Sharing (SMB-In)" option.
Specify a login in the Login field, its associated password in the Password field, a domain in the Domain field and click "OK".
