What does it mean when these settings are commented out in the inputs.conf? Are those inputs disabled by default?

## Logical Disk

The entire input is disabled. The input stanza is also commented out.

The comment means none of that is active.

So if you want to enable the input, you would uncomment the #[perfmon://LogicalDisk] stanza. You would also uncomment the settings under the stanza. Granted, those settings are optional, but are good to use with this input.

"#disabled = 1"
"#instances = *"
"#interval = 10"
"#object = LogicalDisk"
"#useEnglishOnly=true"
"#index = perfmon"

Just so it's clear as to what I am talking about.
