Hi Folks;


Quick question, what would be the best way to accurately monitor the GC % of a .NET application using the .NET agent.  With Java we have a single point to look at, but with .NET we obviously get a bit more metrics based on the perfmon.  One thing I have noticed is that the .NET agent doesn't pull in GC metrics from w3wp.  Is this an issue with my agent installation, or is this because the Agent wont pull that metric for some reason?


We have looked at the '_Global_' metric for the .NET CLR Memory node, but Microsoft states that this is not an accurate metric to look at as it doesn't indicate the GC rate of a particular application.
