Hi John,
Useful info, thanks.
Is this the same data available through jconsole?
I've posted a short item on it here:
I'm guessing perfmon will only have acccess to local counters, so if BI server is on a separate server from PS then the metrics won't be available?

cheers, rnm.

Hi John,

Great information as always. Question for you, what is the retention period for these values (or where is this set)? Active makes sense but Maximum (etc.) is dependent upon the timeframe in reference.

Hi Kevin,
It's since that component (i.e. BI or PS) was started.
See here for how to capture the information to file: :-)
