Is it possible to convert CSV files to Time Series Data (TSD) files?

Is it possible to convert CSV files to Time Series Data (TSD) files?


There is a tool available (since Silk Performer 2008) called Csv2Tsd.exe, which can import Performance Monitor log data in CSV format and convert it into TSD files. Use of this tool is detailed in the help section 'Converting CSV Data for Use With Performance Explorer'.

It can be launched from

START | ALL PROGRAMS | SILK | Silk Performer x.x | ANALYSIS TOOLS | CSV TO TSD CONVERTER.

NOTE: any CSV log file you specify in the command line tool must follow the format generated by the Windows Performance Monitor tool as shown below and described in the OnLine Help under "Converting a Properly Formatted CSV File to TSD Format"

"(PDH-CSV 4.0) (GMT Standard Time)(-60)","\\MachineName\Object Name(1)\Counter Name","\\MachineName\Object Name(3)\Counter Name"
"number","number","number"
