Host and Process Metrics

The Sumo Logic App for Host and Process Metrics allows you to monitor the performance and resource utilization of hosts and processes that your mission critical applications are dependent upon. Preconfigured dashboards provide insight into CPU, memory, network, file descriptors, page faults, and TCP connectors. This app uses Telegraf, an open-source, plugin-based collector for the collection of both host and process metrics data. 

This app has been validated on Linux(Ubuntu 20.04.2 LTS) and  Windows (Microsoft Windows Server 2019) and higher using Telegraf 1.18.2. This app is not recommended in Kubernetes environments; instead please use the Kubernetes app.
