Telegraf Agent not support new WIndows Performance Counter(User Input Delay) on WIN10 1709/1803 Build

Hi, All,

Just report an potential compatibility issue between telegraf agent and couple new Windows performance counter been introduced for Windows 10Client/Server


This are KB mentioned who counters. User Input Delay, which perfectly measure performance of UI response to user’s input(key in/mouse move), by that, in my scenario, I could measure user’s client performance easily without any third part tool.
Those new counter will naturally been provide since 1809 build, before that, it need to be enable manually over reg key
reg add “HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\Terminal Server” /v “EnableLagCounter” /t REG_DWORD /d 0x1 /f

Now the problem is telegraf agent(I had test couple version include v1.11.2)
https://dl.influxdata.com/telegraf/releases/telegraf-1.11.2_windows_amd64.zip

it couldn’t read data from counter and send back to db.

I had a ticket to Microsoft and they feedback the counter should also work on 1709/1803 build at least, also it could be query over powershell(none-UI way).

Hence I wish if our developer interesting on this topic could take a look and have some fix in next release to support them.

Thank you
James
