I am trying to run a performance test of my server using jmeter perfmon plugin. But I am getting an error as in the following image. I have searched a lot for a solution but couldn't find an answer. I tried setting JVM arguments but it didn't work. Link to error image.How can I get it worked?

Looking into JVM crashes occassionally with access violation when using Sigar.getProcMem with disabled Windows performance counters #77 issue it might be the case that Windows don't have performance counters enabled hence Sigar fails to query the CPU status from Windows PerfMon

  1. Check if CPU (and other stats) are exposed in PerfMon
  2. Try running Powershell and Server Agent as Administrator
  3. Try using cmd.exe interpreter instead of powershell
  4. Try running ServerAgent.bat --sysinfo to see if there are any errors there
  5. Inspect e:\hs_err_pid12236.log file for any clues

If nothing helps be aware that you can use SSHMon plugin for server monitoring, it doesn't require server-side software installation
