Splunk removing perflib.dll?

Path Finder

Hello,

We are in the midst of installing Splunk 4.2 universal agents across our entire enterprise. We installed it on 5 64 bit windows 2003 systems. Almost immediately our sitescope monitors went off with no data reported for memory and cpu. So the perflib.dll is no longer on the system and we cannot effectively monitor these systems with SiteScope. Has anyone else run in to this problem and how was it resolved?

Thanks,

Rick

So after dealing with my 4 servers where we installed the universal forwarder we found that the perflib.dll was not removed. However we believe that the performance counters in Windows is negatively impacted from a sitescope stance. Is anyone out there running sitescope monitoring in conjunction with Splunk??

I run SiteScope and Splunk, and I have not seen any issues pulling stats from the windows machine via SiteScope

Hello,

Did you find any solution for this problem. In my systems also splunk forwarder is conflicting with sitescope monitors. sitescope is not detecting any disks, CPU etc..
Please suggest if you have found any solution for this.

The performance counters have likely been disabled, either unintentionally or by the OS for faulting too many times. Try using the exctrlst.exe tool to reenable them, reboot, then try using SiteScope again.
