Getting Started with WMIbeat
To get running with WMIbeat, run "go build" and then run wmibeat.exe, as in the below
If you don't want to build your own, hop over to the "releases" page to download the latest.
To configure the WMI queries to run, you need to change wmibeat.yml. Working from the default example:
classes: - class: Win32_OperatingSystem fields: - FreePhysicalMemory - FreeSpaceInPagingFiles - FreeVirtualMemory - NumberOfProcesses - NumberOfUsers - class: Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfDisk_LogicalDisk fields: - Name - FreeMegabytes - PercentFreeSpace - CurrentDiskQueueLength - DiskReadsPerSec - DiskWritesPerSec - DiskBytesPerSec - PercentDiskReadTime - PercentDiskWriteTime - PercentDiskTime whereclause: Name != "_Total" objecttitlecolumn: Name - class: Win32_PerfFormattedData_PerfOS_Memory fields: - CommittedBytes - AvailableBytes - PercentCommittedBytesInUse
We can configure a set of classes, a set of fields per class, and a whereclause. If there are multiple results, for any WMI class, WMIbeat will add the results as arrays. If you need some help with what classes/fields, you can try WMI Explorer. Note that many of the more interesting classes are "Perf" classes, which has a special checkbox to see in that tool.
To run WMIbeat with debugging output enabled, run:
./wmibeat -c wmibeat.yml -e -d "*"
