Members

CounterId

A unique identifier for the performance counter within the counter set. A counter set can contain a maximum of 64,000 performance counters.

Type

The type of the performance counter. For information about the predefined counter types, see the Counter Types section of the Windows Server 2003 Deployment Kit. Consumers use the counter type to determine how to calculate and display the counter value. Providers should limit their choice of counter types to the predefined list.

The possible values are:

PERF_100NSEC_MULTI_TIMER

PERF_100NSEC_MULTI_TIMER_II

PERF_100NSEC_TIMER

PERF_100NSEC_TIMER_INV

PERF_AVERAGE_BASE

PERF_AVERAGE_BULK

PERF_AVERAGE_TIMER

PERF_COUNTER_100NS_QUEUELEN_TYPE

PERF_COUNTER_BULK_COUNT

PERF_COUNTER_COUNTER

PERF_COUNTER_DELTA

PERF_COUNTER_LARGE_DELTA

PERF_COUNTER_LARGE_QUEUELEN_TYPE

PERF_COUNTER_LARGE_RAWCOUNT

PERF_COUNTER_LARGE_RAWCOUNT_HEX

PERF_COUNTER_MULTI_TIMER

PERF_COUNTER_MULTI_TIMER_INV

PERF_COUNTER_OBJ_QUEUELEN_TYPE

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT

PERF_COUNTER_RAWCOUNT_HEX

PERF_COUNTER_TEXT

PERF_COUNTER_TIMER

PERF_COUNTER_TIMER_INV

PERF_ELAPSED_TIME

PERF_LARGE_RAW_BASE

PERF_OBJ_TIME_TIMER

PERF_PRECISION_100NS_TIMER

PERF_PRECISION_TIMER

PERF_PRECISION_OBJECT_TIMER

PERF_RAW_BASE

PERF_RAW_FRACTION

PERF_SAMPLE_COUNTER

PERF_SAMPLE_FRACTION

Attrib

One or more attributes that indicate how to display this counter.

The possible values are:

Value Meaning
PERF_ATTRIB_BY_REFERENCE
Retrieve the value of the counter by reference as opposed to by value.
PERF_ATTRIB_NO_DISPLAYABLE
Do not display the counter value.
PERF_ATTRIB_NO_GROUP_SEPARATOR
Do not use digit separators when displaying counter value.
PERF_ATTRIB_DISPLAY_AS_REAL
Display the counter value as a real value.
PERF_ATTRIB_DISPLAY_AS_HEX
Display the counter value as a hexadecimal number.
 

The attributes PERF_ATTRIB_NO_GROUP_SEPARATOR, PERF_ATTRIB_DISPLAY_AS_REAL, and PERF_ATTRIB_DISPLAY_AS_HEX are not mutually exclusive. If you specify all three attributes, precedence is given to the attributes in the order given.

DetailLevel

The target audience for the counter.

The possible values are:

Value Meaning
PERF_DETAIL_NOVICE
You can display the counter to any level of user.
PERF_DETAIL_ADVANCED
The counter is complicated and should be displayed only to advanced users.

DefaultScale

The scaling factor to apply to the raw performance counter value. Valid values range from –10 through 10. Zero if no scale is applied. If this value is zero, the scale value is 1; if this value is 1, the scale value is 10; if this value is –1, the scale value is .10; and so on. The scaled value of the performance counter is equal to the raw value of the performance counter multiplied by 10 raised to the power that the DefaultScale member specifies.

BaseCounterId

The counter identifier of the base counter. 0xFFFFFFFF indicates that there is no base counter.

PerfTimeId

The counter identifier of the performance counter. 0xFFFFFFFF indicates that there is no performance counter.

PerfFreqId

The counter identifier of the frequency counter. 0xFFFFFFFF indicates that there is no frequency counter.

MultiId

The counter identifier of the multi-counter. 0xFFFFFFFF indicates that there is no multi-counter.

AggregateFunc

The aggregation function the client should apply to the counter if the

counter set to which the counter belongs is of type Global Aggregate, Multiple

Instance Aggregate, or Global Aggregate History. The client specifies the counter instances across which the aggregation is performed if the counter set type

is Multiple Instance Aggregate; otherwise, the client must aggregate values

across all instances of the counter set. One of the following values must be

specified.

Value Meaning
PERF_AGGREGATE_UNDEFINED
Undefined.
PERF_AGGREGATE_TOTAL
The sum of the values of the returned counter instances.
PERF_AGGREGATE_AVG
The average of the values of the returned counter instances.
PERF_AGGREGATE_MIN
The minimum value of the returned counter instance values.
PERF_AGGREGATE_MAX
The maximum value of the returned counter instance values.

Reserved

Reserved.

Remarks

The PerfQueryCounterSetRegistrationInfo function called with the requestCodeparameter set to PERF_REG_COUNTERSET_STRUCT gets a PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO block that contains one or more PERF_COUNTER_REG_INFO structures.

The PerfQueryCounterSetRegistrationInfo function called with the requestCodeparameter set to PERF_REG_COUNTER_STRUCT gets a PERF_COUNTER_REG_INFO structure.

Requirements

   
Minimum supported client Windows 10, version 1607 [desktop apps only]
Minimum supported server Windows Server 2016 [desktop apps only]
Header perflib.h
