A customer recently inquired about missing data in the "Network Bandwidth" graph. This graph is supported by data from the
proc.net.* metrics (particularly
proc.net.bytes). The Scalyr Agent only looks for network interfaces with an
eth prefix, so if you are running a distribution where this differs, the associated
proc.net data will not show up.
To update the network prefix that is used, follow these steps:
In your /etc/scalyr-agent-2/agent.json configuration file, confirm that the implicit metrics monitor is turned off.
Add the Linux system metrics monitor to your monitors section and define the network prefix that your distribution uses.
These changes will be automatically picked up by the Scalyr Agent once you have saved the
agent.json file (the Scalyr Agent does not need to be manually restarted).
