So I have been provided with a bunch of performance counters that are housed within a particular performance object (i.e. these are not one of the default perf counters that come with Windows) and because I need to access these statistics on a remote machine, I have to use WMI to achieve this.
However, I can't work out which WMI class this particular performance object relates to (I've looked through the list of
Win32_PerfRawData_* classes but there isn't anything that looks like it relates to the performance object in question at least by name).
- Can a performance counter exist without a backing WMI class?
- How do I work out which WMI class I should query to get the perf stats I need?
