CPU metrics by Java APM Agent

Hi guys,
I would like to know if CPU metrics are planned to be collected by Java APM Agent.
Right now they aren't, as explained by documentation and according to some tests I performed with Java APM Agent v 1.6.1. I had to make up for this lack using metricbeat (enabling system module) and collect cpu metric of the unix process.



Hi :slight_smile:

the Java agent does support CPU metrics: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/apm/agent/java/current/metrics.html

You can view those by clicking on the metrics tab of the service overview. See https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/kibana/current/metrics.html


Hi Felix,
thank you. It seems that I didn't notice that metric. I will anyway update the whole ELK stack since I can't see that metrics tab in old Kibana versions.
