Getting Data In

Perfmon:Memory no data even though local performance monitor displaying memory stats for Windows 2003 Server

I have a Windows 2003 Server that is able to report memory stats when running the Windows performance monitor locally on the server. Unfortunately I do not see any data in Splunk for memory for this particular system. All of the other Windows 2003 Servers are displaying memory stats.

go to perfmon, check if the counters are present or not. Write the exact names with spaces, or check with my earlier comment restoring the perfmon counters if missing

Based on the error, this post,

http://answers.splunk.com/answers/25644/perfmon-no-longer-working

and some google...

Try verifying that the counter is enabled, and

%Committed Bytes In Use

instead of

% Committed Bytes In Use

In case you have not checked, are there errors for this input in the splunkd logs?

Please check if the memory object is mentioned properly. Or it may also be possible the perfmon is corrupt and it is not present for monitoring. Refresh your performance counters.

Do you have Splunk configured to monitor your Memory perfmon counter in inputs.conf or perfmon.conf (depending on your Splunk version)? If so, can you post the relevant configuration stanza?
