System Center 2012 SP1: Missing Performance Monitor Counters
After the upgrade to SP1 and installation of the SCOM agent on your Service Manager Data Warehouse and Management servers, you will note several Warning events in the Operations Manager event log. These event IDs are logged as 10102. The cause of these are missing performance monitor counters.
The description of these will begin with “In PerfDataSource, could not resolve counter Health Service Management Groups,” and contain some of the following examples:
Send Queue % Used
Send Queue Size
The cause of these is that there are several registry keys and 1 important file missing after the upgrade to SP1.
Open the registry using regedit.exe and navigate to the key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\services\HealthService\Performance. There are several missing values here, 4 string values (Close, Collect, Library and Open) and 1 32-bit DWORD (Disable Performance Counters).
The last one is the most important, it references the location of the DLL with the counters. Create the next string value, rename it to Library and provide a C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\Service Manager\HealthServicePerformance.dll
Once confirmed, navigate to the SCOM server (technically, you can use any server for this) server and locate the missing file. The location is C:\Program Files\System Center 2012\Operations Manager\Server
Copy the HealthServicePerformance.dll file to all Service Manager servers in the path you entered in the registry string value Library (e.g., a C:\Program Files\Microsoft System Center 2012\Service Manager\)
The registry key should now look like this
Once these entries have been created and the file has been copied, open the Services control panel, locate the System Center Management service and restart it.
* Warning Serious problems might occur if you modify the registry incorrectly by using Registry Editor
or by using another method. These problems might require that you reinstall the
operating system. Modify the registry at your own risk.
