Windows Monitoring

The Windows monitoring module allows you to monitor all Windows machines and get specific counters from the Operating System.

NeoLoad uses PerfMon to get the standard Windows performance counters.


  • Preconfigured Monitoring: Each module ships pre-configured with the performance counters tailored to your system.
  • Threshold Alerts: NeoLoad provides threshold values –derived from industry best practices- to raise the appropriate alerts.
  • Agentless Monitoring: The design of our monitoring modules, based on industry standards, ensures non-intrusive remote monitoring.
  • Real Time: The counter values and the threshold alerts are available as soon as the test is run.
  • Import: Import data from external monitoring tools).

Note: All the modules are included with the free edition.

Performance Counters

On a typical Windows server, the main, basic counters are as follows:

  • MemoryPages/sec. Detects the Pages/sec swap rate. The pages/sec rate is the speed at which the pages are read from or written to the disk when resolving hardware page faults. A hardware page fault occurs when a process has to access code on a physical disk because it cannot be accessed in the memory.
  • MemoryAvailable Megabytes. Indicates how much physical memory remains after the working sets of running processes and the cache have been served.
  • ProcessorProcessor Time %. CPU activity in percentage.
  • SystemProcessor Queue Length. This counter displays the number of threads waiting to be executed in the queue that is shared by all processors on the system.
  • Physical diskDisk Time %. Percentage of elapsed time spent by the selected physical disk drive executing read or write requests.
  • Network InterfacePackets/s. Rate at which packets are sent and received on the network interface.
