Multi-Metric Perfmon

This app is middleware for the Splunk Universal Forwarder perfmon collector, that transforms its perfmon data into multi-metrics.

Every instance you collect will consume a maximum of 150 bytes of license, regardless of how many counters you enable.

This app MUST be deployed to Windows Forwarders, and provides zero value being installed on intermediate forwarders, indexers or search heads.


Deploy this application to your Windows Universal Forwarders either manually or using a deployment server. There is no parsing or search time configuration in this app, so it should not be installed on your Search Heads, Indexers, or any Splunk Cloud instances.


Deploy an inputs.conf to your Universal Forwarders exactly as you would with perfmon, however use the metricperfmon stanza.

disabled = 0
index = metrics
instances = _Total

disabled = 0
index = metrics
formatString = %.6f

disabled = 0
index = metrics
counters = Bytes Total/sec; Bytes Received/sec; Bytes Sent/sec

For more reference, see inputs.conf.spec or https://docs.splunk.com/Documentation/Splunk/latest/Data/MonitorWindowsperformance


The data has a sourcetype of metricperfrmon and a source of metricperfmon:[type]. The easiest way to understand this data is to send it to an event index first, or use mpreview.

| mpreview index=metrics | search sourcetype=MetricPerfmon

Compile Sourcecode

This app ships with a Python 3.10.2 compiled version of metricperfmon.py. If you would like to compile your own version, you can easily do so with pyinstaller. This script is also included in the app named recompile.cmd for convience.

pip install pyinstaller
pyinstaller --onefile --distpath .\etc\apps\BAD_TA_metricperfmon\bin --workpath %temp% .\etc\apps\BAD_TA_metricperfmon\bin\src\metricperfmon.py
