PerformanceCounter.MachineName PerformanceCounter.MachineName PerformanceCounter.MachineName PerformanceCounter.MachineName Property

Definition

Gets or sets the computer name for this performance counter

public:
 property System::String ^ MachineName { System::String ^ get(); void set(System::String ^ value); };
[System.ComponentModel.Browsable(false)]
[System.ComponentModel.SettingsBindable(true)]
public string MachineName { get; set; }
member this.MachineName : string with get, set
Public Property MachineName As String

Property Value

The server on which the performance counter and its associated category reside.

Exceptions

The platform is Windows 98 or Windows Millennium Edition (Me), which does not support performance counters.

Remarks

You can write values only to counters that reside on the local computer. However, you can read counter values from any computer in the enterprise for which you have access privileges.

When you set the MachineName property to point to a remote computer, the PerformanceCounter instance attempts to open the counter on that computer. If the counter does not exist, setting this property throws an exception.
