    Hi All,


    Need assistance how can we monitor MSMQ objects from CA APM 10.2 using perfmon metrics of .Net agent.

    While I was going through  below links:

    PerfMonCollector Service Agent


    Please let me know how can we monitor below mentioned objects and what would be our regular expression for filterPattern of perfmon for the below:

    MSMQ Queue Object: Core Services

    MSMQ Service Object: Core Services

    MSMQ Session Object: Core Services

    introscope.agent.perfmon.metric.filterPattern= ?

    Hello Winkle,


    At this time we do not have any out of the box monitoring for the same per I know. Maybe Hiko_Davis can help here.

    You can do with either APM or UIM using PerfMon.


    In the case of APM, It depends on the counters you want. Some are instance-based, like the queues.

    So if I generally want all of the counters for queues, I'd do something like this:


    |MSMQ Queue|*|*,|MSMQ Service|*


    Remember to start each filter with a pipe "|" symbol.

    Hi Haruhiko,

    Thanks the above is working fine


    Tried with the below  filter |MSMQ Service|*,|MSMQ Queue|*|*,|MSMQ Session|*,|MSMQ Outgoing Multicast Session|*,|MSMQ Outgoing HTTP Session|*

    and getting metrics for MSMQ Queue and MSMQ service but not for others.


    Can you please provide me the link in order to check which all objects are instance-based and which all are not instance-based.

    If you look at TechNet, you will see some of the counters are instance-based, even though they don't appear as such:

    Monitoring Message Queuing performance

    You will need to adjust your filterPattern to account for those.
