Can we know what the service or applications used by Metric beat to collect the system metrics. I am running metricbeat in windows with windows and system module and on Linux with system module. Can I know what are services that are internally used by metricbeat for collecting data in this module like WMI or any other services.
Some information can be found at https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/beats/metricbeat/current/metricbeat-module-system.html, like permissions on specific system directories for instance. Other than this, I don't think there is a list for the exact resources used by the module right now, but you can always have a look into the code since this is an opensource project .
