How Discovery Works

The VirtualWisdom Linux Integration connects to the Linux host using the SSH protocol over a configured port (22 is the default port). To collect metric data from the Linux host, the VirtualWisdom integration must be provided with a user with login credentials to the Linux host and a minimum of read-only permissions.

The entities that are discovered by the Linux Integration and for which metrics are generated include the Linux host, CPU, storage-related devices, network-related entities, volume-related entities, etc. For a specific list of supported entities, see Entity Types.

An integration license is not required for discovery. The license is required only for metric collection.
