Have you ever wondered how to list all performance counters that are present on your computer? Well, I have and after some research I discovered the TypePerf.exe command. Believe it or not, TypePerf.exe is installed by default on all Windows versions after Windows 2000. The syntax looks like this (tested on a Vista machine).
C:>TypePerf.exe –q > counters.txt
This command will list all performance counters on your computer and save it to a text file named counters.
