Sensor PerfCounter



I need to monitor a service through the performance counter sensor. But this sensor only works when included in the REMOTE PROBE and not on a device without REMOTE PROBE. How to proceed to collect such information from this sensor?

What actual error do you get when you try to use the Sensor without a Remote Probe and did you configure WMI and Windows credentials accordingly?
