Summary: Learn how to enable and disable a collection of ODBC performance counter settings for troubleshooting.

Hey, Scripting Guy! Question How can I use Windows PowerShell to enable the ODBC performance counters, run commands in a script, and then disable the counters?

Hey, Scripting Guy! Answer You can store a returned object for later use when you enable the performance counters by using the -PassThru parameter, for example:

$perfCounter = Enable-OdbcPerfCounter -Platform 32-bit -PassThru <Execute some ODBC applications that are using ODBC pooling> Disable-OdbcPerfCounter $perfCounter
