    You can add new 'Counter Logs' by expanding 'Performance Logs and Alerts',
    creating right-clicking 'Counter Logs', selecting 'New Log Settings', then
    'Add Objects' for the computer you're interested in. It's much the same for
    'Alerts', but 'Trace Logs' only seem to be enabled for the local computer.

  3. As an admin from the command prompt key in perfmon

    Select Counter Logs from the Performance Logs and Alerts
    Right click on the Counters logs and select New Log Settings
    Enter a trace name
    Select add counters
    Select counters from computer...

    You are now looking at a remote computer
