Enable Enterprise Library Cache Performance Counters

These instructions are to enable the cache counters on a server where you have deployed code, and not installed Enterprise Library explicitly.  This works for 4.1, but did not work with 3.0 a few years ago.

  1. Run InstallUtil against the Common and Caching dlls
    1. %WINDIR%Microsoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727InstallUtil Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.dll
    2. %WINDIR%Microsoft.NETFrameworkv2.0.50727InstallUtil Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Caching.dll
  2. Update the web.config to include the following items:
    1. <configSections><section name=”instrumentationConfiguration” type=”Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common.Instrumentation.Configuration.InstrumentationConfigurationSection, Microsoft.Practices.EnterpriseLibrary.Common, Version=4.1.0.0, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=31bf3856ad364e35″ /></configSections>
    2. <instrumentationConfiguration performanceCountersEnabled=”true” eventLoggingEnabled=”false” wmiEnabled=”false” applicationInstanceName=”” />
  3. Counters should show up on the server as Enterprise Library Cache Performance Counters
