The Netflow or FSDB service does not stay running.  It keeps starting and stopping every few seconds with the error message:


ERROR: Performance Counter “Process” Category is missing


Netflow 4.x or later


This issue occurs when the Performance Counter “Process” Category is missing.


Perform the steps described in Missing process performance counters.
