Configuration 🔗

This monitor type is available in the Smart Agent Receiver, which is part of the Splunk Distribution of OpenTelemetry Collector. You can use existing Smart Agent monitors as OpenTelemetry Collector metric receivers with the Smart Agent Receiver.

This monitor type requires a properly configured environment on your system in which you’ve installed a functional Smart Agent release bundle. The Collector provides this bundle in the installation paths for x86_64/amd64.

To activate this monitor type in the Collector, add the following lines to your configuration (YAML) file:

receivers:
  smartagent/hana: 
    type: hana
    ... # Additional config

The following example shows additional configuration options:

receivers:
  smartagent/hana: 
    type: hana
    host: myhost.hana.us.hanacloud.ondemand.com
    port: 443
    username: SOMEUSER
    password: s3cr3t

To complete the integration, include the Smart Agent receiver using this monitor in a metrics pipeline. To do this, add the receiver to the service > pipelines > metrics > receivers section of your configuration file. For example:

service:
