Metric extension creation with an OS Command adapter, requires the user to specify define the <Adapter> definition properties.

Environment Variables - Additional properties can be accessible to the command from environment variables. For example, you can add Environment Variable:

However, adding Value="%TYPE%" or Value=%TYPE% may not work in certain cases and the environment variable values are not gathered.
