This section covers the Standalone Machine Agent. It does not cover the embedded machine agent included with the App Agent for .NET.

For information about how to use the Standalone Machine Agent see Standalone Machine Agent.

The Standalone Machine Agent uses a built-in hardware monitor to report metrics and hardware utilization data. The hardware monitor is a script that writes data to STDOUT of a process. The Standalone Machine Agent is always running and reports to the Controller once a minute.
