I was thinking of instead sending data to Zabbix Trapper I could send to Windows Performance monitor and then capture it using Zabbix Agent. Is it possible? How?

from what i gather, this might require some coding. basically, this question boils down to "how to create custom perfcounter" - when it's done and working, zabbix agent should be able to query it without any additional work.

there's some simplistic-looking howto at ms site : http://support.microsoft.com/kb/317679

  1. The first part, creating a custom performance counter is pretty easy in my language of choice (C#).

  2. The second part has an example in the Zabbix default items: perf_counter[\System\File Write Bytes/sec]
