Agent Information Panel

Info

The Info panel contains information about the host system and the installed Agents.

If the Agents are installed in a Kubernetes environment, you will see information about the Kubernetes environment, like Namespace and Node. If, however, the Agents are installed in a baremetal environment, this panel will show information related to the Agent process, like the Pid.

You can also find a link to the Infra App the Agent is associated with. Agent Info
