Something that I’ve noticed not a lot people know, is how to get your disk performance to show up on a server’s task manager. Yes, yes, I know. With the new Microsoft model you shouldn’t be RDP’ing to servers anyways — but I still get asked how to do this. For some reason they have this by default on Windows 8, but not enabled on Servers. So here’s the one command you need to fix that.
1) The problem, no disk portion on task manager. 😦
2) Run the following command to enable it.
This enables the physical and logical disk performance counters.
3) Close and re-open task manager.
There ya go!
I hope I’ve made your day at least a little bit easier.
