Nice page about NAV 2015 performance counters !

Performance counters” provide information about how well Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server is operating. By using monitoring tools such as Windows Performance Monitor and System Center Operations Manager, you can use the Microsoft Dynamics NAV performance counters to collect data on Microsoft Dynamics NAV Server instances, and then use the data to identify conditions that are affecting performance and make adjustments.

Microsoft Dynamics NAV also provides a Data Collector Set template that you can use to easily create Data Collector Sets that contain all the Microsoft Dynamics NAV performance counters.

How to: Set up Performance Counters in Windows Performance Monitor

Working with “Data Collector” Sets

“A Data Collector Set organizes data collection points, such as performance counters and event trace data, into a single collection. Data Collector Sets enable you to schedule data collection, so that you can analyze the results and view reports later. Data that is collected for performance counters by a Data Collector Set is stored in log files, which you can open and view in Windows Performance Monitor. You can create your own Data Collection Set or you can use the Data Collection Set template that is included with Microsoft Dynamics NAV”

  1. Very relevant post by Roberto. Micrsoft’s perfmon and other tools are not ideal for tracking metrics over longer periods of time or setting up alerts easily. I found that pushing the NAV performance counters into Grafana allows one to more easily analyse the NAV metrics. I’ve uploaded a working template for Grafana dashboard that uses Telegraf to pull metrics out of perf counter objects here:

    Hope that helps somebody else who is also still using MS Dynamics NAV 2017 or older.
