Remote monitoring v8
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:
|Feature Name||Remote monitoring supported?||Comments|
|Capacity Manager||Limited||There's no correlation between the Postgres cluster and operating system metrics.|
|Manage alerts||Limited||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.|
|Manage dashboards||Limited||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.|
|Manage probes||Limited||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.|
|Postgres Expert||Limited||The Postgres Expert provides partial information as operating system information isn't available.|
|Scheduled tasks||Limited||Scheduled tasks work only for Postgres clusters, and scripts run on a remote agent.|
|Core usage reports||Limited||The Core Usage reports don't show complete information. For example, the platform, number of cores, and total RAM aren't displayed.|
|Postgres Log Analysis Expert||No|
