Performance Monitoring Agent

A Performance Monitoring Agent is a service that collects performance metrics at regular intervals, the collected data is sent to a controller server which stores the data in a database administered by Apica.

Monitoring agents can provide more insight from your environment since they are installed on your servers and collect metrics while you are running the load test.

Note that the agents only run while your load test is active.

Examples of metrics collected by the agent could be CPU usage, memory usage, network and disk utilization.
