Some of the work I do is heavily disk bound so I often have perfmon running for object PhysicalDisk, instance C: with counters % Disk Read Time & % Disk Write Time.

This is easy enough to set up but is there any way to start this configuration automatically on reboot?

There doesn't seem to be any way to save my counter set in perfmon once it has been set up.


You can use the MMC. Run mmc from Start-Run, then go to File – Add or Remove Snap-ins. Add Performance to the selected snap-ins:

MMC - Performance image

Add whatever counters you want, then simply save it.

MMC - Save image

Close the MMC and you should be able to open the saved .msc file by simply double-clicking on it.
