Windows Performance counters inputs config question

Hi, I have probably and easy question for the ones that have done this before. I have set up an universal forwarder to collect windows performance counters, the collection and forwarding works fine. The thing i am curious about  is that In the forwarders inputs config I have specified it to collect:

 

stats = average;min;max;dev;count

 


But in Splunk i receive an event containing value, min, max, dev and count. Everything except the  "average" value. Is this contained in the value field instead, or have I done something wrong in the config?

Hi @hethu,

only one question: did you created your input by yourself or you used the one contained in the Splunk_TA_Windows?

If you created by yourself, I hint to try the above Add-On that contains all the counter that are usually used.

Anyway, an average can be easily calculated in the stats command using the avg option.

Ciao.
