Monitoring Splunk

How to stream Azure VM performance counters with Azure monitor add on for splunk?


I'm using Azure monitor add-on for Splunk to collect Azure Diagnostic, activity logs and metrics but this add on , as I understand , does not include collecting performance counters Data from VMs.
does someone knows how can I collect performance counters?

This add-on should collect VM metrics as long as you tag the VM. For example, here is what I have tagged on a VM via the Azure Portal:

metrics: Percentage CPU, Network In, Network Out

I got the values for the metrics tag from this page -> Note that some of these metrics are still in preview though.

Here is the search for the metric data:

sourcetype="amm:*" amm_resourceType="MICROSOFT.COMPUTE/VIRTUALMACHINES" | stats values(name.value)
