tGetData error 224.

Keywords: 	 tGetData error 224.

Question:

My code:
counter = '\\MYMACHINE\Process(MYPROCESS)\%% Processor Time'
nTime=tGetData(counter ,1)
Errors out with
224: An argument is not correct or is incorrectly formatted.

NOTE: I can read this counter fine via perfmon, but it errors when I use tGetData.

Another strange thing is the script works on another nt4 server at work, and works on my 2000 pro machine at home, but bombs on the nt4 server I actually want to run it on.

Answer:

The error 224, basically is an invalid arguement.....it could mean the counter string passed to the function is invalid. But it sounds like you have confirmed this to be a valid counter string.

Make sure you are running version 10006 of the process extender. There have been some changes to the function tGetData.....

Apparently *some* counters require retrieving two samples of performance data, inorder to properly calculate the data returned. % processor time is one of those. We modified the function tGetData, to handle these types of counters.
