dragent is the main process in the agent that collects and collates data from multiple sources, including syscall events from the kernel in order to generate metrics. The analyzer module that runs in the dragent process does much of the work involved in generating metrics. These internal metrics are used to troubleshoot the health of the analyzer component.

Sysdig Monitor provides the following analyzer metrics:

  • dragent.analyzer.command_line_cats.n_none


  • dragent.analyzer.max_sinsp_buf_used

  • dragent.analyzer.n_drops

  • dragent.analyzer.n_drops_buffer

  • dragent.analyzer.n_evts

  • dragent.analyzer.n_main_thread_lookups
