PerformanceCounterCallHandler - Not working - not getting any errors

Jul 26, 2011 at 4:04 PM

 Hi forum

I have tried for hours to get PerformanceCounterCallHandler injected into my test console app. (code and config below)

I can not get it to work. I'm not getting any errors. The call is getting though to my implementation - so my object is loaded by Unity. I followed this "guide".

I installed the performance counters and I can see the category "PerfMonTest" in perfmon (that I specified when using installutil) but I see no instance. I have tried to set a breakpoint - to check if there were an instance when running - but no.  I have tried to include PolicyInjection.2010 in my project - No breakpoints are getting hit when I set it in PerformanceCounterCallHandler.Invoke. So I'm guessing that this is something before it even tries to log.

I cannot find any samples where this is working :( I'd probalby prefer it the programatic way - but I also tried the code in the before-mentioned guide. And it is not working :(

Here is my code and config. Home someone can help.

using System;
using System.Threading;
using Microsoft.Practices.Unity;

namespace ConsoleTest
    class Program
        static void Main(string[] args)
            var container = new UnityContainer();
            var ur = container.Resolve<UserRepository>();
            ur.Create(new User());



    public interface IUserRepository
        void Create(User obj);

    public class UserRepository : IUserRepository
        public void Create(User obj)

    public class User
