When using lodctr to unload the counter for a certain service you will use the service name as specified in the event description. However, for unlodctr the trick is to find the right .ini file and in many cases it takes some guess work. For example, most of the performance counters .ini files are located under C:\Windows\System32 (or the corresponding folder if Windows is installed in a different location):
- W3SVC service - w3ctrs.ini
- TermService service - tslabels.ini
- MSFtpsvc service - ftpctrs.ini
After using the lodctr command you should see a new event id 1000 from PerfLib in the Application log confirming that the performance counters were loaded successfully.
Example for service W3SVC:
- Open a command prompt
- Type: unlodctr W3SVC
- The unloading should be confirmed with a message like this:
"Removing counter names and explain text for W3SVC
Updating text for language 009". In the Application event log, event id 1001 is recorded, saying: "Performance counters for the W3SVC (World Wide Web Publishing Service ) service were removed successfully. The Record Data contains the new values of the system Last Counter and Last Help registry entries. "
- Type: lodctr w3ctrs.ini
- There is no confirmation message from this command. However, an event is recorded in the Application log. Open the event log viewer and verify if an informational event id 1000 has been recorded. The description should say:
"Performance counters for the W3SVC (World Wide Web Publishing Service ) service were loaded successfully. The Record Data contains the new index values assigned to this service."
