I have six custom performance counters that were created by a .NET app. When I open Performance Monitor and add them to the live view, those counters are displayed correctly. I can see the values I expect in the live graph.
I created a user defined data collector set that records some built-in counters like "Processor\% Processor Time" and "Memory\Available MBytes" as well as the custom performance counters. Everything appears to work correctly when I save it and start it.
When I let it run for a while and then restart the data collector and open the BLG file, it shows all the built-in counters correctly, but my custom counters are not available. They aren't listed in the "Available Counters" list. Why can't perfmon select my custom counters?
