Getting Data In

Windows Perfmon data routing issues

I am trying to get Windows Perfmon data in. I have been successful for some servers but not others, despite using the same inputs.conf configuration.

For instance, I am getting Memory stats from our DC1 but not our DC0. The inputs.conf files for both servers are the same minus the host name. we have about 15 servers that I need to monitor and for whatever reason only 3 of them are sending in Memory stats. In fact, this is actually happening over multiple different performance stats (disk, network, etc). All of my servers though are sending CPU stats.

Here is our input.conf file:

[default]
host = **********

looks like you arent specifying an index in your inputs.conf try and search index=main .... and see if the data is there.
otherwise, try this document:
