I'm trying to get the remote performance monitoring running. I do following.

  1. Start up 'Performance Monitor'
  2. Right click on 'Performance on the top and select 'Connect to another computer'
  3. There I choose my remote machine.

I've also done following things:

  1. Added the 'Performance Logs and Alerts' to the firewall exception
  2. Started the 'Remote Registry Service' (without it I get the 'path not found error'
  3. Start the 'Performance Logs and Alerts' service.

I'm running Windows 7 Professional on both machines.

Update: I'm not sure if I really have Admin rights when I login remotely. Is there a way to explicitly specify the user which is used on the remote machine?

It's a lot easier if you are in a domain. If you're not in a domain and it's windows XP or newer, you have to deal with a bunch of firewall, DCOM permissions, and user rights. – Eric Falsken Oct 4 '11 at 14:36

There is a similar question over on StackOverflow you may want to check out: Issues remoting to perfmon.

Apparently the user fixed it by resetting the target machine's registry permissions.

Also, ensure your user account has administrator rights on both systems, and/or is a member of the "Performance Monitor Users" group on the target machine. See here for more info on Performance Monitor user rights.
