Notes

  • You will have to edit the default
    config.xml
    to match your system.
  • The default
    config.xml
    will not work for non-English systems. You have to adjust the config file, see below.
  • For the known issues see issues.

Configuration

The

config.xml
file must be adapted in the following cases:
  • You have a non-English Windows system running. The search strings in the
    config.xml
    file must be adapted to the language of the operating system, otherwise the corresponding strings will not be found by Perfmonbar and nothing will be displayed in the taskbar.
  • You want to display other information in the taskbar. To do this, you have to find the appropriate and available strings and change them in the
    config.xml
    file.
  • You want to change the appearance of the information in the taskbar. To do this, you need to change the corresponding properties in the
    config.xml
    file.

Where is the
config.xml
file?

Usually, the

config.xml
file can be found under:
C:\Users\{User}\AppData\Roaming\PerfmonBar\config.xml

To quickly get to the directory, you can simply type

%APPDATA%\PerfmonBar
.

How to find the desired settings?

Open a console and run the command

typeperf -q > counters.txt

Then you can search the file

counters.txt
for the desired performance counters that are available on your computer. The counters are unfortunately called differently in every single language.
