Forthe DBAlite Oracle Database Performance Summary app, host related information like CPU and Memory comes from the Splunk Add-on for Unix and Linux.
But as per the documentation, the "unix_metrics" index is not getting created. It only creates the os index.

Please clarify

Honestly, creating indexes on your behalf is not good practice, and it won't continue forever. Index configurations have huge impact on performance, security, and data retention; it's really best not to trust an out-of-the-box default.
