  • Hi Gomathi,

    Welcome to the MSDN Forum.

    Would you like to try this KB: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/246758 

    This article describes how to use Performance Monitor and the Datalog.exe file that is included with Microsoft Windows NT 4.0 Resource Kit to log data and generate alerts on a remote computer without having to log on to it.

    I hope this will be helpful.

    Best regards,

  • Add the user account which runs the application to the  Performance Monitor Users group on the remote machine.
