Because Windows performance counters for NetworkAdapter only shows the adapter name, not the friendly name, I’m looking to tag some of my
win_perf_counters for easier filtering in Grafana/Chronograf. For example:
[[ inputs.win_perf_counters ]] [[inputs.win_perf_counters.tags ]] nic = "vm-traffic-01" [[inputs.win_perf_counters.object]] Instances = [ "broadcom bcm57810 netxtreme ii 10 gige [ndis vbd client] _47" ] Counters = [ "Bytes Received/sec", "Bytes Sent/sec", "Current Bandwidth", "Output Queue Length" ] ObjectName = "Network Adapter" Measurement = "winperf_networkadapter"
However, here’s an example of one of lines generated by running kapacitor with
> winperf_networkadapter,instance=microsoft\ network\ adapter\ multiplexor\ driver\ _3,objectname=Network\ Adapter,host= redacted Current_Bandwidth=2000000000 1507235215000000000
Not sure if I’m doing something wrong or misunderstanding here?
