Performance logs and alerts service

Archived from groups: microsoft.public.win2000.general (More info?)

Does anyone know why this service would stop by itself immediately after
being started?

I ran some logs through Perfmon on three of our servers. The next day
noticed that the service on each of the servers was stopped. I restarted it
one each and later that day noticed that it was once again stopped. I little
investigating revealed that it stops almos immediately after it is started.

If anyone has a clue as to what would cause this i would appreciate hearing
from you...because I am once again Stumped

    All the event viewer shows are the success audits of the process starting and
    immediately stopping. No other entries...and I'm logging everything the event
    viewer can log. Thanks for giving it some thought :)

    If the system and or application logs are blank then the files are probably
    corrupt. Control Panel|Administrative Tools|Services|Event Log
    Service|General, set the "Startup Type:" to "Disabled" restart the pc, then
    delete (or move) the corrupt *.evt file(s) from %windir%\system32\config
    then set the Event Log Service "Startup Type:" back to "Automatic", restart
    for effect.

    The logs are working correctly, but the only reference to the performance
    logs and alerts service that show up are the success audit when I start the
    service and the success audit (usually within the same second) when the
    service stops. It's only doing this on the three servers I ran the
    performance logs on. I did find this in reference to someone else's problem
    with the automatic updates service... "Some services stop automatically if
    they have no work to do, for example, the
    Performance Logs and Alerts service"...But that brings up another question;
    Why would it only stop after running logs?

    Don't know if my ramblings have been of any help, but i do appreciate the
    time and thought you've given this,

    Thanks :)

    Are you starting the service or the log? The service will start when
    required such as when you start a counter log, etc. In other words, don't
    worry about it.
