Compact Framework Remote Performance Monitoring

January 16, 2007 — 2 Comments

I’ve been asked by a client to help them setup Remote Performance Monitoring (RPM) tool available with .NET Compact Framework 2.0.  Although it’s pretty easy to setup, information is scattered in a lot of places so the reason for this post.

RPM can be found under %Program Files%\Microsoft.NET\SDK\CompactFramework\v2.0\bin. It is available with NETCF SP1 which can be downloaded here.

Steven Pratschner has details on setting up RPM and some other details not documented anywhere.  He’s also written some relevant articles here and here.

Chris Tacke wrote a bootstrap application that will automatically setup the device to be used with RPM.  See here for more info and to download. 

David Kline has written detailed descriptions of all the counters here.

If there is anything I missed let me know.

  1. Thanks for the information it has been great. I was using the RPM successfully for a while, then we switched to CF2 SP1 at the same time as receiving a new WM5 OS from Symbol and started getting Access is denied errors from RAPICONFIG. If you know of any definitive pages where this problem is address it would be great to have some details.



  2. Derek, have a look at here ( the section marked "Installation Notes for Windows Mobile 5.0 Devices". Also, try using CF2.0 SP2.
