Getting Data In

Fully disable perfmon

mavilla
Explorer

Hello all,

I am trying to fully disable perfmon from our splunk instance as we don not use this data to monitor any of the hosts. I have disabled the setting in Splunk Web and have the data is still there when I run the query to search for perfmon data. I've read on older posts on how to disable this feature, however, I do not have the Splunk_TA for windows folder as I've never had the app to use the perfmon data. Any other guidance on how to fully disable this feature?

Thanks

Are there UF that have the app installed? Also you might want to check SPLUNK_HOME/etc/system/local. If there is an inputs.conf with the stanza's in there.

do you have the Splunk_TA_microsoft_ad app installed? Run this command on on of the universal forwarder that is sending the data.

.\splunk.exe cmd btool inputs list --debug
