The Stolen Server Memory (KB) counter was introduced in SQL Server 2012. (In earlier versions, there was the Stolen pages counter)

The SQL Query below will get you the value you are looking for.

SELECT cntr_value
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [counter_name] = 'Stolen Server Memory (KB)'

Using the Multi Channel SQLspXML sensor, you can select multiple values to report on, like

SELECT
   counter_name as Channel 
  ,cntr_type as Value
  ,1 as IsInt
  ,'KB' as Unit
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [counter_name] = 'Stolen Server Memory (KB)'

UNION

SELECT
   counter_name as Channel 
   ,cntr_type as Value
   ,1 as IsInt
   ,'KB' as Unit
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [counter_name] = 'SQL Cache Memory (KB)'

UNION

SELECT
   counter_name AS Channel 
  ,cntr_type as Value
  ,1 as IsInt
  ,'KB' as Unit
FROM sys.dm_os_performance_counters
WHERE [counter_name] = 'Total Server Memory (KB)'

More info can be found in the sensor's manual.

Hello,

thank you very much for KB-Post. Please check if you can get this metric with a SQL-Query, then you can use a normal SQL-Sensor with a SQL-Sensor and the query. Maybe the metric is also available as a Performance Counter or a WMI Class / Object. Then you could look into using a Custom Performance Counter or Custom WMI Sensor.

best regards.
