ConfigMgr SCCM Performance Counter Template Endpoint Manager. Templates are always helpful 🙂 This post is a continuation of the previous post, How to Find Out DDRs Processing Rate.
When you want to perform a deep-level analysis on the performance of the SCCM server, then you need to include more performance counters and run the capture for at least an hour.
ConfigMgr SCCM Performance Counter Template Endpoint Manager
I’ve selected the following counters in this template as I’ve DDR backlog issues. When you want to analyze the performance of some other SCCM ConfigMgr or SQL components, you can add and remove them from the Data Collector file. I’ve explained this as the 6th point below.
Memory, Network Interface, Paging File, Physical Disk, Process, Processor, SMS Discovery Data Loader, SQLServer: Databases, SQLServer: General, Statistics, SQLServer: Locks, SQLServer: Memory Manager and System. ConfigMgr SCCM Performance Counter Template Endpoint Manager?

Navigate through Data Collector Sets – User Defined – New – Data Collector Set. As shown in the following picture.

4. Where would you like the data to be saved
Browse and select the patch where you want to save the performance capture file. The file’s extension is .blg
Default location for my scenario was %systemdrive%\PerfLogs\Admin\SCCM 2012 Performance Counter.
Ensure there is enough space on that drive to store the capture file.
5. Save and Close is the default option.
Always verify the performance counters selected in the template and check whether each counter is required in your scenario or not. In my case, I wanted to create a performance counter for DDR process issues.
6. When you wanted to analyse the performance of Inventory instead of DDR :
Open the properties of the .blg file as shown in the picture below, remove SMS Discovery Data Manager, and add SMS Inventory Data Loader.
