List of Performance Counters for every SQL Server folks

The Remote PerfCollector Agent collects more than 200+ Windows and SQL Server metrics which are crucial for any SQL Server operation. The agent has the ability to collect data within every few seconds from one or more remote servers continuously. The collected data are in two categories: one is Windows specific and the other is SQL Server specific which is seamlessly stored in a Time Series database known as influxDB.

The following table provides each counter name and measurement units. Please note that all SQL Server counters are prefixed with the “SQL” keyword, whereas Windows counters are prefixed with either “cpu”, “disk”, “sys”, “network” or “memory”.

You might be interested in reading the following two articles for easy installation and configuration of “PerfCollector”:
