Metric Insights' Plugins

About Plugins

Metric Insights has a flexible plug-in infrastructure which allows us to connect to many different data sources to pull metrics into the KPI warehouse.

In order for Metric Insights to have access to your data source, however, in some cases it is necessary to install Insightd (a thin remote data collection process) on a machine inside your network. If a plug-in requires Insightd to be running on a machine in your network, it will be noted below.

Note: Even if a plug-in is listed as not requiring Insightd, if your network configuration is such that your data source is locked down and the Metric Insights server does not have access to it, you will still need Insightd to run on a machine behind your firewall that has network access to your data sources. General stand-alone installations of Metric Insights should not require this, however

The list below includes our most popular plug-ins.  If you don't see the the plug-in that you need in the list below, please contact Metric Insights.
