Host monitoring agent linux performance impact



I just want to know how much performance does it take when balance is requesting data from the host agent. I think it should be very low 0,x % . Customer wants to have a statement. So do we have official numbers?

How often is data captured?

Best wishes,




Hi Markus,

Balance collects configuration information once per hour, at the bottom of the hour. It collects performance information every 15 minutes.

The impact of Balance on monitored devices is a FAQ, here is the link to the KB article.
