I have my Splunk enterprise instance set up on a windows server. I also have 4 universal forwarders set up on Windows servers and 4 more universal forwarders set up on Linux servers. Right now, I want to forward PerfMon stats from the 4 Windows servers. When I was setting up the forwarders on these servers, I checked the boxes in the forwarder installers that allowed certain PerfMon counters to be sent to the Splunk server. Those are successfully sending certain counters like "AvailableBytes", "BytesReceived/sec", etc.
My question is how can I add more of these PerfMon counters to be forwarded to my Splunk Server? I saw some information about the Splunk App for Windows, but that was using Deployment clients and things like that, and I was wondering if their was a simpler way of just adding specific PerfMon counters in the forwarder settings on each server.
Would it be better to use the Splunk App for Windows instead?
