Perfmon for WCF Services on IIS7

October 1, 2008 at 9:12 pm (WCF)

If you are running benchmarks with perfmon in Windows 2008 64-bit you can no longer user the ASP.NET and ASP.NET Application of perfmon is your application is in 32-bit mode.

As a better alternative anyway, is to use the new ServiceModel perfmon. You need to add the diagnostics section in the web.config like this:

    <diagnostics performanceCounters="All" />

Then you will have access to metrics for each operation(method) in each endpoint in the ServiceModel* categories of perfmon. Really nice!
