I need a comprehensive and complex set of performance counters in windows performance monitor. At this point every time that I use performance monitor, I have to add the counters, one by one. Is there any way to save the counter set and load it at the later use? Thank you,

A colleague figured out how to achieve this. Instead of launching Performance Monitor directly, instead:

  1. Launch the Microsoft Management Console (mmc.exe)
  2. File -> Add/Remove Snap-ins
  3. Select Performance Monitor, select Add >, select OK.
  4. Add your desired Counters as usual
  5. File -> Save As...

The resulting .msc file will allow you to restore the Performance Monitor with your saved Counters!
