Cinchoo – Using Performance Counters, Part 4

This is the continuation of previous articles on Performance Counters. So far you learned how to create, use and control the performance counters in your application. In this article, I’ll talk about two performance counters category attributes to control the installation of ¬†Performance Counters.

There are

  • selfInstall – true to install the counters automatically when you instantiate the object, otherwise it won’t install the counters.
  • recreate – true to recreate the counters irrespective of their existence, otherwise skip recreating them if already exists.
