Collecting Partition Metrics

In some cases, an organization might want to collect information on COM+ application use for the purposes of monitoring, capacity planning, and resource accounting.

For example, an application service provider (ASP) might want to charge a customer for its resource usage. To do this, COM+ allows you to collect event and metrics information on a per-partition basis.

The way to collect this information for a specific partition is by specifying, for each COM+ instrumentation interface, the partition ID member within the standard event structure. The event structure is the first value of a COM+ instrumentation interface. For more information, see COM+ Instrumentation Interfaces.
