Collect performance data from remote servers

To collect performance data from remote servers, when running a load test for example, use the following PowerShell script:

$testId = "doodle"
$durationSeconds = 20
$threadsPerAgent = 5
$client = ""
$counterList = @(
".NET CLR Exceptions()# of Exceps Thrown / sec",
".NET CLR Memory()# Total committed Bytes",
"\ASP.NET\Application Restarts",
"\ASP.NET\Request Wait Time",
"\ASP.NET\Requests Queued",
"\ASP.NET Applications()\Requests/Sec",
"\Web Service()\Current Connections",
"\Web Service()\Get Requests/sec",
"\Web Service()\Post Requests/sec",
"\LogicalDisk()\Avg. Disk sec/Read",
"\LogicalDisk()\Avg. Disk sec/Write",
"\LogicalDisk()\Disk Transfers/sec",
"\LogicalDisk(C:)\% Free Space",
"\LogicalDisk()\Avg. Disk Queue Length",
"\Memory\Available MBytes",
"\Processor()\% Processor Time",
"\System\Processor Queue Length",
"\Network Interface()\Bytes Received/sec",
"\Network Interface()\Bytes Sent/sec",
"\SQLServer:Buffer Manager\Buffer cache hit ratio",
"\SQLServer:Buffer Manager\Page life expectancy",
"\SQLServer:Locks()\Number of Deadlocks/sec",
"\SQLServer:Locks()\Lock Waits/sec",
Get-Counter -counter $counterList -ComputerName $computers -MaxSamples 308 -SampleInterval 5 | Export-Counter -Path C:\jmeter\results\$testId.blg -FileFormat BLG -Force

The output will be a .blg file. Open this to see all your data.

You can right-click | Save data as to export this information to CSV for easier use.
