Perfstat for Windows GUI

Hi Gurus,


I am trying to setup perfstat untility on a windows admin host. When I run perfstat comamnd I get following error on windows

"Perfstat v7.39 (4-2013)

RSH to filer amsdc1-na-p512.europe.shell.com fails! Quitting."


When I tried to enable RSH on Filer ( 8.2.4P6 7-Mode) it throws below error.


Filer> options rsh.enable on
error: cannot change option, rsh is disallowed.


Please help. is there a way I can run perfstat with out rsh enabled as an alternate option. We do not have any unix based admin servers unfortunately.
