New Python Cartridge custom agent

I would like to use the new Python cartridge agent to develop an agent to collect Linux Huge Pages memory metrics from our database servers. I'd like to create it as a remote agent so I don't need to install a FglAM on the database servers. Can these Python custom agents take advantage of the credentials already defined in the FMS? If so how is that done?

If I can create a remote agent would it be best to create on agent instance per server monitored, or could I create one agent instance to monitor many servers? I could supply the hostnames to monitor as properties of the agent.

Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks,

Kris

  • Hi Gaston,
    It was was my enhancement request about a year ago (SR#3325424) that created IC-2445.
    While I was waiting for that I went ahead and created a custom script agent to collect those metrics. When we upgraded recently I thought I'd try the Python Agent as this was a simple agent and I thought it would make a good test case. I have it working as a replacement for the script agent but thought I might try something a bit more in depth, hence my question to the community about using Foglight credentials with the Python agent. If that isn't possible that's OK, I was curious.
    Thanks,
    Kris
