PerfMon Counter

Mar 30, 2009 at 9:09 PM
I added a "Cylinder Gauge" monitor for:
Monitor Type: PerfMon
Category: LogicalDisk
Counter: Free Megabytes
Instance: C:

After starting the monitor the number in the bottom left of the gauge is correct but the % next to the cylinder reads 100%.
Shouldn't this be reading in MB instead of % and the number next to the cylinder should reflect the MB?

My drive total capacity is 36GB, it's using 16GB and has 20GB free.

Actually this is working as designed. The cylinder gauge will only report percentages.
Poor design I know, but I will fix this in a future release to accommodate data transformation prior to reporting back on a visual display (such as scaling and translating values), but this is how the cylinder gauge behaves for now.

For now, you should simply set the maximum value for the gauge as your total drive space (in Megabytes) in the properties dialog. The counter display will show the actual free megabytes and the gauge display will show this as a % of free space.
Hope this helps.
