Getting Data In

I'm able to gather Memory and CPU information, but why am I not seeing any LogicalDisk perfmon data using a Universal Forwarder?

Greetings,

I have been building a perfmon solution for a POC that my company is about to undergo with regards to some light endpoint monitoring. We are wanting to look at several things, including CPU, Memory and Disk statistics and monitoring. Now, I have been able to, on my test machine utilizing a Universal Forwarder on version 6.1.4, gather the Memory and CPU perfmon information. However, I am not seeing anything for my LogicalDisk perfmon object. Here is the stanza in inputs.conf:

[perfmon://FreeDiskSpace]
counters = *
instances = *
interval = 10
object = LogicalDisk
disabled = false

I have the interval set to 10 so that it runs and sends some data. Any suggestion is helpful. Thank you.

I was able to get this figured out. I am actually forwarding Perfmon data to an indexer, and what I forgot to do for this one was specify the index. I was able to get it to work with this:

[perfmon://FreeDiskSpace]
 counters = *
 instances = *
 interval = 10
 object = LogicalDisk
 disabled = false
 index = perfmon
