The documentation in this section describes how to set up agent-based and agentless monitors.

Agent-based custom monitors are user-defined instrumentation for specialized workloads. OspRamp provides native monitors so you can also create custom monitors by writing your scripts.

Using a custom monitor, you can define remote metrics and metric conditions for a monitor and gather the performance insights using an agent that runs on Windows and Linux devices. An alert is generated when the threshold surpasses the conditions defined in a metric.

The Agent supports the following monitor types:

  • Generation 1(G1) Monitors - All existing monitors are G1 monitors.

  • Generation 2 (G2) Monitors - Agent G2 monitors were introduced with the 7.0 release. This brings parity across agents and gateway while defining and managing custom monitors and the associated templates.

    G2 monitors prerequisite: Agent version v7.0.0 and higher.
