The PerformanceCounter component can be used for both reading existing predefined or custom counters and publishing (writing) performance data to custom counters.
There are numerous predefined counters listed in the Windows Performance Monitor's Add Counters dialog box. To learn about the .NET Framework performance counters, see Performance Counters.
This type implements the IDisposable interface. When you have finished using the type, you should dispose of it either directly or indirectly. To dispose of the type directly, call its Dispose method in a try/catch block. To dispose of it indirectly, use a language construct such as using (in C#) or Using (in Visual Basic). For more information, see the "Using an Object that Implements IDisposable" section in the IDisposable interface topic.
