Troubleshooting SQL Server with PowerShell–Gathering Performance Counters

coletar Hi Guys, this is the second demo that I will show at my Virtual Pass BR presentation , and with luck to be accepted, SQLSATURDAY 162 – Cambridge.
The PowerShell module used is my PerfCounters module, that is part of the SQLPSX. In fact you need the SQLPSX to run this solution and the Luc´s Export-Xls function.

For a complete explanation, read :

Gathering Perfmon Data with Powershell

Also I want to thanks Luc Dekens (@LucD22)  for his AWESOME function Beyond Export-Csv: Export-Xls and the MS Forum , in there I found a solution for an Issue that took me some hrs.

If I told you that with a command line I gathering Performance Monitor data on multiple servers and stored to a SQL Server table (repository). After that, with a SQL Server Job I automate the procedure to export to Excel, generate graphs and send by email to me with all ready. Do you believe in me ?  No ? Well, PLEASE do not care about my English, if you don’t understand something just ping me, but I did a video showing this.
