Hello,

I installed a universal forwarder (6.2.2) on two servers Active directory (windows 2008), I configured inputs.conf to send performance data. The problem is : i received only DNS perfmornce (perfmon DNS and perfmon NTFS), i didnt receive system performance (memory, processor..).

Could you help me please ?

Regards

Copying those CPU settings into my German Windows 7 works.

yes it works for me with my windows 7, and other windows server 2008 R2, but it didn't work with 2 windows server 2008 ( active directory server). I didn't understand why.

Hi,
Best way to troubleshoot is to check the splunkd.log files and see if you are making any mistake on the input stanza. Did u check the permission on the input files? they don't forward if splunk is not able to read them. so go to security tab and see who all are having the permission. Then give the necessary permissions.

Thanks,
L

Hi, yes i chcked the splunkd.log and i didn't find errors. I also checked the permission on the inputs files, and splunk is able to read them. I can't find the source of the problem.

You could post your inputs.conf settings to increase your chances of finding someone with a solution.

Are they possibly logging perfmon data in a different language?
