PerformanceCounterCategory pcc = new PerformanceCounterCategory(categoryName);
InstanceDataCollectionCollection idColCol = pcc.ReadCategory();
InstanceDataCollection[] idColArray = new InstanceDataCollection[idColCol.Count];

Console.WriteLine("InstanceDataCollectionCollection for \"{0}\" " +
    "has {1} elements.", categoryName, idColCol.Count);

// Copy and process the InstanceDataCollection array.
idColCol.CopyTo(idColArray, 0);
