Windows 7: Performance Monitor perfmon save settings / session

Performance Monitor perfmon save settings / session

First of all - hi! I'm new to the forum.

In windows XP perfmon asked every time I wanted to close it if it should save the settings / session. In Windows 7 it says nothing and I see no way to save all the counters I've set up. There is an option to Save Settings but I see no option to load them back. Basically I want Performance Monitor to startup as I left him the last time. Any hints?

Start - Run - MMC
File - add snapin - perfmon
Then customize it the way you like, and then save it as before.

You can also add other snapins and save it - but UAC will pop up if you choose to run in author mode with full permissions which might be a good idea depending on who uses the computer or not.

Thank you all a lot! It works! I mainly use it to tweak my memory/ramdisk/pagefile on ramdisk sizes.

Aaah, I knew it can't be that pretty :/

I need the following counters:
pagefile actual usage (not some commited size bs)
physical memory usage (or physical memory available)
CPU core 1 usage
CPU core 2 usage

Unfortunately I was able to turn on only the firs counter for my pagefile and the memory available (using 0,01 scale). I can't get the processor usage. Can anyone help me?

It seems that it's not that easy.

If anyone knows of the counter that is most suitable to measure CPU usage in perfmon, please post your idea here.

Save a Windows session
Is there any way to save a session of Windows, clean reboot the machine (for updates for example), and then restore that session? Hibernate saves the Windows session to the disk and restores it upon booting, so there must be a way.
