I've been trying to add a counter to a monitor set to watch all instances of a Network Interface for traffic, with no luck. I believe the *ALL instance is supported in this case. Can anyone confirm or deny that?.
Anyways, I've added the *ALL instance to the Network Interface object, then added a counter to the monitor set. The counter shows in "Live Counter", with no results, and does not appear in the monitoring log at all. On the server being monitored, the monitor set appears in the c:\kworking folder, but the xml file is missing the counter. See below.
I have confirmed that ID #1830 is the correct monitor set. If I check Perfmon, there is no data collector. I can, however, check the Network Interface object, and get results using the <all instances> option. See below.
For testing purposes, my collection interval was set at 1 minute, threshold at -1, counting on total bytes/sec, just to ensure that I would get some results. Things that i have tried include:
After all that, I did create a counter specifically for the instance highlighted in my Perfmon screenshot, which returned results, which leads me to believe that there is something wrong with my *ALL instance for Network Interface objects. Perhaps the *ALL instance is not supported for NICs?
Any help is appreciated.
