PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO structure

Contains information about the PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO block that contains the structure. A PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO block provides registration information for a counter set and the performance counters it contains, and consists of a PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFOstructure immediately followed by a set PERF_COUNTER_REG_INFO structures that correspond to the performance counters in the counter set.

Syntax

typedef struct _PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO {
  GUID  CounterSetGuid;
  ULONG CounterSetType;
  ULONG DetailLevel;
  ULONG NumCounters;
  ULONG InstanceType;
} PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO, *PPERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO;

Members

CounterSetGuid

The unique identifier for the counter set.

CounterSetType

Reserved.

DetailLevel

The target audience for the counters in the counter set.

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.

NumCounters

The number of PERF_COUNTER_REG_INFO structures in this PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO block.

InstanceType

Specifies whether the counter set allows multiple instances such as processes and physical disks, or a single instance such as memory.

The following are the possible instance types.

Value Meaning
PERF_COUNTERSET_SINGLE_INSTANCE
The counter set contains single instance counters, for example, a counter that measures physical memory.
PERF_COUNTERSET_MULTI_INSTANCES
The counter set contains multiple instance counters, for example, a counter that measures the average disk I/O for a process.
PERF_COUNTERSET_SINGLE_AGGREGATE
The counter set contains single instance counters whose aggregate value is obtained from one or more sources. For example, a counter in this type of counter set might obtain the number of reads from each of the three hard disks on the computer and sum their values.
PERF_COUNTERSET_MULTI_AGGREGATE
The counter set contains multiple instance counters whose aggregate value is obtained from all instances of the counter. For example, a counter in this type of counter set might obtain the total thread execution time for all threads in a multi-threaded application and sum their values.
PERF_COUNTERSET_SINGLE_AGGREGATE_HISTORY
The difference between this type and PERF_COUNTERSET_SINGLE_AGGREGATE is that this counter set type stores all counter values for the lifetime of the consumer application (the counter value is cached beyond the lifetime of the counter). For example, if one of the hard disks in the single aggregate example above were to become unavailable, the total bytes read by that disk would still be available and used to calculate the aggregate value.
PERF_COUNTERSET_INSTANCE_AGGREGATE
Not implemented.

Remarks

The PerfQueryCounterSetRegistrationInfo function called with the requestCode parameter set to PERF_REG_COUNTERSET_STRUCT gets a PERF_COUNTERSET_REG_INFO block.
