I'm currently testing Splunk 6.0.1 on a Windows Server 2008 R2 (fresh install). I want to monitor that particular Windows-Server, so I downloaded the Windows App 5.0.2 and installed it via the GUI. Now during the initial setup of the app, I just clicked "Save" without modifications to any parameters. Under "Windows Perfmon Inputs", all options were listed under "enabled": Processor, Network Interface, Memory, PhysicalDisk, LogicalDisk, Process, System.
However, after saving the settings, the dashboard "Performance Monitoring" in the app showed no data. I troubleshooted a bit I found that under the settings page in the app, all Perfom-Inputs were gone except for "System". They weren't shown under "enabled" nor under "disabled".
I don't understand why this happens. I tried to configure the inputs manually in inputs.conf (didn't work) and also tried installing a separate Universal Forwarder with the Windows TA, but that instance also wasn't able to send Perfmon-data to the Splunk-Instance.
Anyone has an idea what's going on here?
