Moogsoft Collector

NOTICE: This feature and related documentation are provided "as-is" and are subject to change without notice.

The Moogsoft Collector is a lightweight, easy-to-install agent that collects time series performance data on Linux and MacOS devices then sends that data to Moogsoft.

The Moogsoft Collector is based on the Vector open-source observability tool. Each collector includes a set of preconfigured plugins that collect detailed performance metrics and send the data to your Moogsoft instance.

To install a collector, you simply run a cURL request that downloads and executes the install script.

Note

To migrate from an old Collector: stop the old Collector, delete the install directory, then install the new Collector. For more information, refer to Collector Operations.
