Commands used in SSH sensors



I would like to know the specific commands used for:
SSH load average
SSH meminfo
SSH INodes Free

The reason is I need to know the permissions required in the target device to execute these sensors before I can ask for a user, so I can not use history command to obtain them.

Thanks and kind regards

Hi there,

We do not share our specific commands we use to query data, since this is internal knowledge. Please configure a user that is allowed to run the sudo commands and reach the usual performance parameters.

Kind regards,
