Vultr Dashboard Populating

Does anyone know how the Vultr dashboard in our accounts are populated? Is there a daemon/user running in the VMs that is used to monitor the server usages?


  • Nothing like that - the Host is neutral regarding what's installed within it - it could be linux, bsd, windows, or gh0stwr1terOS, so it has no presuming knowledge of anything within, like how memory is managed, or even what sort of file system is in use.

    No, all stats are gathered server side - I don't know exactly the server-side details, but presumably it's monitoring the CPU usage of the process that drives each VM. Similarly, the server can easily count the traffic going through it.
  • Thanks Jamie. At this point I am assuming you are correct. Appreciate the feedback.
