The service was unable to add the counter "<\\machinename\parameter category\parameter>" to the <log or alert name> log or alert. This log or alert will continue, but data for that counter will not be collected.

Comments
 
This will occur when you try to use performance tool to monitor counters on a different server. Under services ensure that the "Performance Logs and Alerts" service has a logon that has "log on as a service" permission on the destination server.
