Remote monitoring v9
Remote monitoring is monitoring your Postgres cluster using a PEM Agent residing on a different host.
To remotely monitor a Postgres cluster with PEM, you must register the cluster with PEM and bind a PEM agent. See Registering a server for more information.
The following scenarios require remote monitoring using PEM:
PEM remote monitoring supports:
|Remote monitoring supported?
|There's no correlation between the Postgres cluster and operating system metrics.
|When you run an alert script on the Postges cluster, it runs on the machine where the bound PEM agent is running and not on the actual Postgres cluster machine.
|Some dashboards might not be able to show complete data. For example, the operating system information where the Postgres cluster is running isn't displayed as it isn't available.
|Some of the PEM probes don't return information, and some of the functionality might be affected. For details about probe functionality, see PEM agent privileges.
|The Postgres Expert provides partial information as operating system information isn't available.
|Scheduled tasks work only for Postgres clusters, and scripts run on a remote agent.
|Core usage reports
|The Core Usage reports don't show complete information. For example, the platform, number of cores, and total RAM aren't displayed.
