    Does anyone know of a way to reset a specific performance counter without
    rebooting the Windows Server 2003 Enterprise?

    Is there a util that will allow me to reset a specific counter for testing

    Thanks for any information.

  2. Simply start collecting data to different file.

    I'm not capturing the data to a file as far as I'm aware of. I need to be
    able to reset the counter value without rebooting the server. Are all the
    performance counter values being saved to a specific file? The performance
    counter I need to be able to reset is from an application called Cimplicity
    HMI Device > Skipped Polls counter.

  4. I haven't heard about your application. You should then direct your question
    to the application vendor.

    Counters don't need to be reset. They start accumulating values at the
    moment they are started to be used, like when you open a new Counter log
    file or when you add one to the performance console System Monitor. When
    you, for example, remove and add counter to performance console, you have
    "reset" the counter.

    I rebooted one of the servers to see if the performance counter would go back
    to zero and it did. This is what I excepted to happen, but I would like to be
    able to control resetting the value without having to reboot the server.
    Hopefully I will find a way to accomplish this task.
