Windows moduleedit

This is the windows module which collects metrics from Windows systems. The module contains the service metricset, which is set up by default when the windows module is enabled. The service metricset will retrieve status information of the services on the Windows machines. The second windows metricset is perfmon which collects Windows performance counter values.

The Windows module supports the standard configuration options that are described in Modules. Here is an example configuration:
