If I simply change the sourcetype, it breaks the input, so by default, all those metrics based scripts output with the metric name using the _metric suffix.
Unfortunately, ALL the ITSI OS module searches are looking for the un suffixed metric names, E.G. cpu, ps, vmstat!
If I alter the searches to look for the updated suffixed metric names, I don't get the OS Host Information panel appearing on the entity within the deep dive or entity view.
So I don't know how, under the configured searches, any of this will work unless heavily modified, or why the documentation points to event log collection scripts but the module requires metrics indexes given the use of mstats to search.
