Windows 2016 Data Collector Sets

I have some question regarding data collector sets which I was hoping the E.E members could help me with.

1) I have a base install of Windows 2016 GUI. When I go to Computer Management and expand Performance Monitor I do not see any Data Collector set listed.

2) I have a number of Windows 2012 and 2016 core DC's and would like to export the AD Diag data collector set and import it into a Core user using logman import. This is possible correct?

1 Performance connector for windows server 2016, it's not there such a feature for 2016.

There are just performance counters up to 2012 r2.  (since it's not listed in the previous link, this means that is not there for 2016).

2. I don't think is possible to do it using the regular process to do it, since it's not listed in ws 2016 as I pointed early:

The issue is because is not there such a feature for 2016

A alternative solution.

Use PowerShell to create them and manage them.

Thank you for the feedback. Stupid question, but what were Data Collector sets removed from Windows 2016?

The feature just doesn't exists in 2016. It wasn't moved it, in fact was just removed it

Thanks for all of the great information. I cannot be believe there isn't a write out there on performance monitor for Windows 2016 core DC's

What about this:

using Performance monitor: https://www.windowscentral.com/how-use-performance-monitor-windows-10
It seemed to me very weird as well, but it works on windows server 2016 with GUI (not with core).
