The methods of the PerformanceCounter class are listed here. For a complete list of PerformanceCounter class members, see the PerformanceCounter Members topic.
|BeginInit||Begins the initialization of a PerformanceCounter instance used on a form or by another component. The initialization occurs at runtime.|
|Close||Closes the performance counter and frees all the resources allocated by this performance counter instance.|
|CloseSharedResources||Frees the performance counter library shared state allocated by the counters.|
|CreateObjRef (inherited from MarshalByRefObject)||Creates an object that contains all the relevant information required to generate a proxy used to communicate with a remote object.|
|Decrement||Decrements the associated performance counter by one through an efficient atomic operation.|
|Dispose (inherited from Component)||Overloaded. Releases the resources used by the Component.|
|EndInit||Ends the initialization of a PerformanceCounter instance that is used on a form or by another component. The initialization occurs at runtime.|
|Equals (inherited from Object)||Overloaded. Determines whether two Object instances are equal.|
|GetHashCode (inherited from Object)||Serves as a hash function for a particular type, suitable for use in hashing algorithms and data structures like a hash table.|
|GetLifetimeService (inherited from MarshalByRefObject)||Retrieves the current lifetime service object that controls the lifetime policy for this instance.|
|GetType (inherited from Object)||Gets the Type of the current instance.|
|Increment||Increments the associated performance counter by one through an efficient atomic operation.|
|IncrementBy||Increments or decrements the value of the associated performance counter by a specified amount through an efficient atomic operation.|
|InitializeLifetimeService (inherited from MarshalByRefObject)||Obtains a lifetime service object to control the lifetime policy for this instance.|
|NextSample||Obtains a counter sample, and returns the raw, or uncalculated, value for it.|
|NextValue||Obtains a counter sample and returns the calculated value for it.|
|RemoveInstance||Deletes the category instance specified by the PerformanceCounter object InstanceName property.|
|ToString (inherited from Object)||Returns a String that represents the current Object.|
|Dispose||Overloaded. Overridden. See Component.Dispose.|
|Finalize (inherited from Component)||Overridden. Releases unmanaged resources and performs other cleanup operations before the Component is reclaimed by garbage collection.
In C# and C++, finalizers are expressed using destructor syntax.
|GetService (inherited from Component)||Returns an object that represents a service provided by the Component or by its Container.|
|MemberwiseClone (inherited from Object)||Creates a shallow copy of the current Object.|
