How to view counters for TCP/IP processes with Performance Monitor?

How to view counters for TCP/IP processes with Performance Monitor?

Post by R. Nottro » Sun, 24 Aug 1997 04:00:00

I overlooked something in my earlier news post that is perhaps
crucial, possibly even causing my problem.  My network connection is a
PPP dial-up using the RAS phone dialer (the NT server on which I am
running the Performance Monitor, Net Monitoring Agent, WINS, and SNMP
dials out to a CISCO terminal server for a PPP connection).  Now, the
NT 4.0 manuals also say:
"... The Network Monitor Agent collects statistics from the computers
network adapter card by putting it in promiscuous mode, a state in
which the network adapter card can be directed by a device driver to
pass on to the operating system all the frames that pass over the
network. To determine if your card supports promiscuous mode, see the
documentation that accompanies the card."

I am wondering if this all works only with a network card, but not
with a modem.  Would you have any insights here?

Thanks again.

1. Performance Monitor doesn't show TCP/IP

Performance Monitor does not list my network resources (NetBEUI and  
TCP/IP) as objects, despite the fact, that they are configured and up and  
Any ideas why?
