When using the Machine Agent on Windows:

  • Check the server frequently to ensure that it has the latest Windows updates installed.
  • If you have a Server Visibility license, use the ServerMonitoring extension.
  • If you do not have a Server Visibility license, or if you want to collect Basic metrics only, use the JavaHardwareMonitor extension.

To collect Machine or Server metrics on a machine with Machine and .NET Agents installed, you must enable .NET Compatibility Mode on both the Controller and the Machine Agent. See .NET Compatibility Mode
