Namespace: System.Diagnostics
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public InstanceData (
	string instanceName,
	CounterSample sample
public InstanceData (
	String instanceName, 
	CounterSample sample
public function InstanceData (
	instanceName : String, 
	sample : CounterSample



The name of an instance associated with the performance counter.


A CounterSample taken from the instance specified by the instanceName parameter.

The following code example creates an InstanceData and displays the values of some of its fields.

' Display the contents of an InstanceData object.
Sub ProcessInstanceDataObject(ByVal name As String, _
                              ByVal CSRef As CounterSample)

    Dim instData As New InstanceData(name, CSRef)
    Console.WriteLine("    Data from InstanceData object:" & vbCrLf & _
        "      InstanceName: {0,-31} RawValue: {1}", _
        instData.InstanceName, instData.RawValue)

    Dim sample As CounterSample = instData.Sample
    Console.WriteLine("    Data from CounterSample object:" & vbCrLf & _
        "      CounterType: {0,-32} SystemFrequency: {1}" & vbCrLf & _
        "      BaseValue: {2,-34} RawValue: {3}" & vbCrLf & _
        "      CounterFrequency: {4,-27} CounterTimeStamp: {5}" & vbCrLf & _
        "      TimeStamp: {6,-34} TimeStamp100nSec: {7}", _
        sample.CounterType, sample.SystemFrequency, sample.BaseValue, _
        sample.RawValue, sample.CounterFrequency, sample.CounterTimeStamp, _
        sample.TimeStamp, sample.TimeStamp100nSec)
End Sub
