Hi, I'm doing an experiment with CPU-intensive algorithms (=PI calculation) and I'd like to use the PCM plugin for Perfmon to monitor the system.
It took me a while, but I managed to install the PCM plugin for Windows Perfmon and I also succeeded in using the Remote Monitoring capabilities of Perfmon to monitor the counters remotely. The only problem that remains now is that sometimes I get 0-values (or just gaps) when using certain PCM counters ("clockticks" is one of them) and I was wondering if this is just performance-related or did I do something wrong during installation?
It occurs at two different systems (a Sandy Bridge i5 2410m/Win7 and a Haswell i5 4250u/Win8.1), both using the WinRing0 drivers, and it also happens when I monitor locally (so executing Perfmon on the system that's being monitored). I already gave the PCM-service the highest priority, but sometimes the "gaps" also occur at Process-related counters (so non-PCM counters) and therefore I thought it could be maybe a performance issue.
Does anyone here experienced the same thing maybe once or have you got any tips? Thanks in advance!
