The agent is now detecting when it is executed in a Linux container context and changes it's behaviour depending the environment.

In containers the agent currently does the following:

  • lxc_container_cpu: This check is used instead of the normal CPU utilization check
  • zfs filesystems are not excluded for the df section anymore
  • kernel section is not processed, because it's the host systems kernel the agent reports information for
  • drbd section is not processed for the same reason
  • lnx_thermal section is not processed for the same reason
