The Metricly Windows Agent is a Microsoft Windows service that collects, aggregates, and publishes windows performance counters and attributes. Microsoft SQL Server, IIS, and .NET metrics are native to our Windows Agent. Only one Windows integration in your account is necessary to receive all Windows-related metrics.
Installation is as easy as executing an MSI installer and configuring the service. The agent is pre-configured to send the most important performance metrics, windows events, and system attributes to Metricly. It can also be configured to send additional or different data if required
If you install our Windows agent on an AWS EC2 or Azure VM, the EC2’s / VM’s power state (it will come in as the attribute
hostRunning with a value of true or false) and tags are copied over to the corresponding Windows WINSRV element. You can then use this information to create policies.
msiexec /quiet /package CollectdWin-x64.msi NETUITIVE_API_KEY=my_api_key
Optionally, if you have a web proxy in your environment, you may need to configure the agent to use it.
If the service is already running, you’ll need to restart it for any configuration changes to take effect.
