Agent Information

The following agent information page is loaded when an Online agent is selected by clicking the agent’s name.

Agent information tab

The page will show less information if the agent is not connected to the agent manager. Custom labels are displayed if the xm_admin instance in the agent configuration defines Labels.

The action buttons on this page function similarly to those on the agent list page.

If the agent is Online and some of its modules have variables or statistical counters, they will appear on this page in a table.

Modules

Click the Modules tab to show detailed information about each module as shown in the following image.

Agent modules information tab

This information is only available when the agent is Online. The table contains the following information.

Name

The name of the module instance.

Module

The type of loadable module which was used to create the module instance.

Type

The type of module:

  • INPUT

  • PROCESSOR

  • OUTPUT

    Extension module instances are not shown.

Status

The status of the module:

  • STOPPED

  • RUNNING

  • PAUSED

  • UNINITIALIZED

    The module may become PAUSED if it cannot send or forward the output. This is caused by the built-in flow control and is perfectly normal unless you see the module in this status for a longer period and the number of sent messages does not increase. You do not need to start the module when it is PAUSED, it will resume operations automatically.
Received

The number of log messages received or read.

Processing

The number of log messages in the module’s queue waiting to be processed.

Sent

The number of log messages written or sent by the module.

Dropped

The module may drop some messages. This number will be shown here. This is calculated using the values reported in Received and Sent.

Statistics

Click the Statistics tab to display several fully interactive graphs. There is a graph for each of the following parameters:

  • System load & memory usage.

  • Total event count.

  • Event counts for each module.

Optionally, additional graphs can be added for module variables and statistical counters by clicking the Add chart button.

Select a module and fill in the name of the variable. Regular expressions of the name are also supported.

Select the graph’s interval from the following values displayed in the drop-down menu:
