host.uname

host.uname provides the following system information:

  • kernel name

  • kernel release number

  • kernel version

  • machine hardware name

Agents send this metric along with a number of labels that map with the uname information. host.uname is supported on agent versions 10.1 and above.

The labels are given below:

LabelDescriptionMapping to the uname toolingExample
host.uname.kernel.nameThe kernel nameuname -sLinux
host.uname.kernel.releaseThe kernel releaseuname -r5.4.0-31-generic
host.uname.kernel.versionThe kernel versionuname -v#35-Ubuntu SMP Thu May 7 20:20:34 UTC 2020
host.machineThe hardware name of the machineuname -mx86_64

Example: Kernel Versions in the Infrastructure

The image depicts host.uname being segmented by host.uname.kernel.version. The resulting dashboard gives the distribution of kernel versions in the infrastructure.

Count Limits StasD Metrics

The count limits metrics report the upper limit of the number of metrics of the same type. The values the metrics report can be changed by modifying the dragent.yaml file.
