Enabling the disk performance counters on the newer Windows Server operating systems can be easily forgotten about, but it can provide some really good info in the task manager which I find myself missing on servers that do not have this enabled.

It’s really just one command. In an elevated CMD shell, execute:
diskperf -Y
And then look at your task manager.



Now you have disk performance metrics just a few clicks away.

Thank you for reading!
