  Are you Java Machine Agent or .Net Extension Manager to reoport Custom Metric ?

In case of Java Machine Agent using

Then we just to make sure the output to std out is in format

name=<metric name>,value=<long value>,aggregator=<aggregator type>, time-rollup=<time-rollup strategy>, cluster-rollup=<cluster-rollup strategy>

 you can just use PowerShell's write-host to send it to std out


In case you are using .Net Extension Manager you can use following extension

write-host "metric1 | instance1 , value = $Value";
