Periodically Monitor Proxy Performance Counters and the Event Log

- J.D. Meier, Jason Taylor, Alex Mackman, Prashant Bansode

Monitor Proxy Performance counters and the Windows event log for errors and warnings on a periodic basis, to get a good picture of how your proxy is functioning. Make sure that proxy caching is enabled and monitor the performance of your cache.

You should observe the following performance counters:
  • Current Cache Size
  • Total Cache Hits - count and percentage
  • Total Download Requests
  • Total Files in Cache
  • Total Cache Miss - count and percentage

These performance counters are registered when you install the proxy. The proxy performance counters are multi-instanced, which means there is a set of counters for each application tier that you have configured in the Proxy.config file. By collecting this data, you get an understanding of the performance when the proxy server is running.

Note that the TFS proxy saves cache performance statistics to an Extensible Markup Language (XML) file named ProxyStatistics.xml, and you can change the interval for saving these statistics. The ProxyStatistics.xml file is located in the App_Data folder in the proxy installation directory.
