Performance Counters

Cisco Unified Presence directly updates Performance counters (called PerfMon counters). The counters contain simple, useful information, such as the number of subscriptions that are activated and number of PUBLISH messages that are processed.

You can monitor the performance of the components of the system and the components for the application on the system by choosing the counters for any object by using RTMT. The counters for each object display when the folder expands.

You can log perfmon counters locally on the computer and use the performance log viewer in RTMT to display the perfmon CSV log files that you collected or the Realtime Information Server Data Collection (RISDC) perfmon logs.

You can also enable troubleshooting perfmon data logging to automatically collect statistics from a set of perfmon counters that will provide comprehensive information on the system state. Be aware that enabling troubleshooting perfmon data logging may impact system performance on the server.

The Real-Time Monitoring Tool (RTMT) displays perfmon counters in chart or table format. The chart format displays the perfmon counter information by using line charts. For each category tab that you create, you can display up to six charts in the RTMT Perfmon Monitoring pane with up to three counters in one chart.

By default, RTMT displays perfmon counters in a chart format. You can also select to display the perfmon counters in a table format. To display the perfmon counters in table format, you need to check Present Data in Table View when you create a new category.

You can organize the perfmon counters to display a set of feature-based counters and save it in a category. After you save your RTMT profile, you can quickly access the counters that you are interested in. After you create a category, you cannot change the display from a chart format to a table format, or vice versa.
