You do this at the counter level, not as a snap-in. When you are adding a counter in perfmon you'll have the option to add the counter using the local computer counters or using counters from a remote machine. You don't need to add a separate machine as a full perfmon snap-in.


  • Open perfmon and click the + button to add a counter (or right-click and select "Add Counters...")
  • Click the "Select counters from computer" radio button
  • Type the name of the machine that you want to gather info from.
  • Select the counters you wish to use in your trace
