Memory usage is wrongly reported to the controller from Linux Machine agent ver 4.5.x


Hi all,


We have a machine agent  installed on a Linux box with SIM enabled and we see the memory usage is constantly shown as 5% though it varies when checked on the server manually, PFB.

PS: All other data such as diskspace, CPU and network are reporting with correct values and the issue is only with the memory usage.


free -m

Any help is much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

Hi. What flavor and version of linux? Agent version? Controller version? Thanks!

Hello Allan,


It is a Security-Enhanced Linux box with os.arch=amd64 and os.version=3.0.101-108.87.

Machine agent version -

Controller Version -


Let me know if any more info required.




Is this RedHat / CentOS / Ubuntu / etc? And what version of those. Thanks. 

It is SUSE Linux with version -  3.0.101-108.87. Thanks.

So according to this:

You need to have the zypperinstallprocps library installed for SUSE. The agent is only compatible with SUSE 11, 12, and 15. 


Hope this helps.
