A DataTable object value that contains a list of performance counters supported by the instance of SQL Server. The table describes the different columns of the returned DataTable.

Column
Data type
Description
ObjectName
String The name of the performance counter object. The SqlServer.ExecStatistics object, for example.
CounterName
String The name of the performance counter. The Distributed Query counter, for example.
InstanceName
String The name of the measurement to be taken. The Exec started per second instance, for example.

Examples

Visual Basic

Dim srv As Server  
srv = New Server  
'Call the EnumCollations method and return collation information to DataTable variable.  
Dim d As DataTable  
'Select the returned data into an array of DataRow.  
d = srv.EnumPerformanceCounters()  
'Iterate through the rows and display collation details for the instance of SQL Server.  
Dim r As DataRow  
Dim c As DataColumn  
For Each r In d.Rows  
   Console.WriteLine("============================================")  
      For Each c In r.Table.Columns  
      Console.WriteLine(c.ColumnName + " = " + r[c].ToString)  
   Next  
Next  

PowerShell

$srv = new-Object Microsoft.SqlServer.Management.Smo.Server("(local)")  

$d = $srv.EnumPerformanceCounters()  

Foreach ($r in $d.Rows)  
{  
   Write-Host "============================================"  
   Foreach ($c in $d.Columns)  
   {  
      Write-Host $c.ColumnName "=" $r[$c]  
   }  
}  

Remarks

This method enumerates all the performance counters available in SQL Server that you could use to create a performance alert. You can also see the performance counters listed in Use SQL Server Objects.
