Getting Data In

How to get Windows counter into metrics

New Member

Hi,
I'm trying to ingest Windows perf data into Splunk,
ingestion to event index with the following conf works fine:
[perfmon://Processor]
counters = *
disabled = 0
interval = 30
index = myeventindex
object = Processor
instances = *
formatString = %.20g

however, it doesn't work if I just change the index to metric index:
index = mymetricindex

I read the doc of metrics index : https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/SplunkCloud/7.2.4/Metrics
looks I have to have statd/collectd/csv/hec configured in place for metrics ingestion.

wonder if it's possible to just use inputs.conf to ingest metrics? or any other workaround to avoid staging layer?

Thanks a lot!
