How Metric Collections Works

The Linux Integration uses the SSH protocol to connect to the Linux host to collect metric data. The integrations executes various Linux commands to read specific files located on the Linux host, extract data, and transmit that data to IPM for processing.

The polling interval for data collection by the integration is configured by the user. Data points are determined by the poll interval.

The complete list of metrics for this integration is available in a separate guide.
