This document describes how to create a custom Data Collector Set in Windows Performance Monitor to collect process data for UCCE and PCCE solutions.
Cisco recommends that you have knowledge of these topics:
The information in this document is based on these software and hardware versions:
- Unified Contact Center Enterprise (UCCE) versions 9.0.(x), 10.x, 11.x
- Packaged Contact Center Enterprise versions (PCCE) 9.0.(x), 10.x, 11.x
- Microsoft Windows Server 2008, 2012
The information in this document was created from the devices in a specific lab environment. All of the devices used in this document started with a cleared (default) configuration. If your network is live, ensure that you understand the potential impact of any command.
Certain issues require an in-depth analysis of the Windows platform. These issues require that you collect a comprehensive Performance Monitor Data Set in order to properly troubleshoot them.
Create a new Data Collector Set
Step 1. Open Start and type Performance Monitor (or perfmon) in the search box and press Enter.
Step 2. Navigate to Data Collector Sets > User Defined.
Step 3. Right-click on User Defined and select New > Data Collector Set.
