MetricsView Agent (aka, MV-Agent) is an application installed and run locally on your host, gathering statistical data and sending it to Dotcom-Monitor.

To download the application, go to the Tools section in the top navigation, and on the MetricsView Agent pan click Download. Once you have downloaded the agent run the installer on the machine you wish to use as your collector agent and follow recommendations of the installation wizard.

Once you have installed the agent on the target host:

  1. On the target host, in the MetricsView Agent Registrator pop-up, enter your Dotcom-Monitor username and password in order to attach this collector to your account.
  2. Select an existing Collector from the MetricsView Collectors list and click Continue. Registration will take a few minutes.
  3. If successful, click Close in the corresponding dialog Setup Successful.

This agent will be able to monitor any performance counters available on this machine, as well as any additional performance counters of other machines on this network that the service has access to.
