Health Monitor does not show statistics for services.

In %plesk_dir%"\\admin\\logs\\HealthMonitoring.log the following can be found:

Reinstalling Health Monitor did not help to resolve the issue.


WMI (Windows Management Instrumentation) service is hang or stopped.


  1. Make sure that Windows performance counters in registry HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\\SYSTEM\\CurrentControlSet\\Services\\PerfProc\\Performance are not disabled:

    Ensure if you have a DWORD entry named "Disable Performance Counters" that if it was set to 1, that it is properly set to 0 (zero).

  2. Restart WMI

    Go to Services > Windows Management Instrumentation > Restart

  3. In Plesk go to Health Monitor > Detect Hardware Changes . Relogin.

To avoid this issue in future WMI service watchdog script can be installed. It will monitor WMI service health and automatically restart WMI service and processes if any error is detected.
