Collected metrics for Linux 🔗

The following sections list the collected metrics when you use the default configuration for the Collector for Linux in host monitoring (agent) mode.

The Collector processes collected data as configured in your pipelines. Therefore, metrics that are imported by receivers might be excluded further into the pipeline by other components. For instance, the SignalFx exporter, included in the default Collector configuration, drops certain metrics and applies translation rules that impact the metrics the Collector sends to Splunk Observability Cloud.
