Hi Nik,

what kind of statistics you want to get from your NLB cluster ?

I would personally work with the available performance counters -> check
this out :
Chapter 10 - Working with Performance Counters (Section NLB)
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb734903.aspx

Hope that helps

Regards
Ramazan

There are no perf counters exposed by NLB itself.

If you are using W2K8 R2 you can use events from the NLB diagnostic channel

http://blogs.msdn.com/clustering/archive/2010/01/07/9944946. aspx

These events have information about each packet processed by NLB including
- accepted or dropped
- if dropped then the drop reason
- source/destination IP addresses and ports
- protocol

You can either write a program that consumes these events
(http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb968803(VS.85).aspx)
in real-time (but be careful since real-time might affect perf) and show you
statistics
or you can collect the events to an etl file, and write a program to get
statistic from the etl file offline
or you can dump the etl file to a text or XML and write a script that would
print the statistics.
