Win32_PerfRawData_MSDTC_DistributedTransactionCoordinator powershell sample code

The foundations for Manageability in Windows is Windows Management Instrumentation (WMI; formerly WBEM) and WMI extensions for Windows Driver Model (WDM).

ActiveXperts Network Monitor provides the ability to build monitor check routines based on WMI. ActiveXperts has collected more than a hundred WMI samples. You can use these samples as a base for new check routines you can write yourself. The Win32_PerfRawData_MSDTC_DistributedTransactionCoordinator WMI class can be used in ActiveXperts Network Monitor to monitor your servers.


The Win32_PerfFormattedData_MSDTC_DistributedTransactionCoordinator "cooked" data performance counter class represents Microsoft Distributed Transaction Coordinator performance calculated counters. This class is shown as the Distributed Transaction Coordinator object in System Monitor. The WMI source of its data is the high-performance Cooked Counter Provider. This class derives its raw data from the corresponding raw class Win32_PerfRawData_MSDTC_DistributedTransactionCoordinator. The original data source is the MSDTC performance library.

Sample Code

$computer = "LocalHost" 
$namespace = "root\CIMV2" 
Get-WmiObject -class Win32_PerfRawData_MSDTC_DistributedTransactionCoordinator -computername $computer -namespace $namespace
