There are however certain situations where it’s not possible to install OneAgent directly on hosts (for example, 3rd party cloud platforms such as CloudDBs) or hardware appliances, such as routers, firewalls or data powers. Additionally, you may sometimes want to automatically send important metrics to custom network devices in your environment. read more
