A vRealize Hyperic agent monitors itself. You can tailor the metric collection settings for an agent, use agent metrics to troubleshoot problems, and base alerts on agent metrics or events.

The metrics that an agent reports for itself are:

  • Availability

  • JVM Free Memory

  • JVM Total Memory

  • Number of Metrics Collected Per Minute

  • Number of Metrics Sent to the Server Per Minute

  • Server Offset

  • Total Time Spend Fetching Metrics per Minute
