Today, I had to implement custom performance counters in one of our applications. I haven’t worked much with performance counters before, so I wanted to check the Internet for some good articles and maybe some helper classes or wrappers around the functionality. I found this article, which does an excellent job explaining how to go about it. But it didn’t offer any helper class or plug ‘n play wrapper, so I decided to build my own. Then I can use it the next time I have to implement performance counters in .NET.
