Ever have a performance problem, but don’t know what performance counters to collect or how to analyze them? PAL (Performance Analysis of Logs) tool is a new and powerful tool that reads in a performance monitor counter log (any known format) and analyzes it using complex, but known thresholds (provided). It generates an HTML based report which graphically charts important performance counters and throws alerts when thresholds are exceeded. The thresholds are originally based on thresholds defined by Microsoft product teams and members of Microsoft support, but continue to be expanded by this ongoing project. This tool isn’t a replacement of traditional performance analysis, but it automates the analysis of performance counter logs enough to save you time. This’s a VBScript and requires Microsoft LogParser (free download).
