Now ive got up to specifying my counters but i cannot find options to:
1. Set the inteval to one second.
2. Specify which user to run counter logs and enter the users password
3. Leave the log files and schedules tabs at their defaults - (dont even know what this means)
Any ideas how to do these?
In Reliability and Performance Monitor, Click on Performance Monitor ont he left pane, then right click it and "New" > "Data Collector Set". Run through the Wizard, here you can give a name and set the user to run as and enter the password. You will hen see it under "Data Colector Sets" ion the left pane, you can right click go to properties to see the other settings.
