Hi Friends,

Here is a wonderful piece of document that can help you find the availability of any Performance Monitor Counter for SQL Server in any version starting from SQL 2005.

Many a times, when we are working with various versions of SQL Server, especially in the role of DBA, and when we have a need to work with perfmon counters, we struggle to figure out whether a particular counter exists in a specific version. We have to check the availability of counters by running performance monitor on that specific Windows box – a simple by tedious/time consuming process.

This document lists down all the SQL Server counters and their availability in SQL Server 2005, 2008, 2008 R2, 2012 and 2014. Here is a screenshot:
