The Component Filters feature is applicable for all G2 based templates (Agent and Gateway collector types).


This feature is helpful in cases where a client wants to filter the components or instances of any metric in the G2 template as per their requirements. By using these component filters, you can monitor specific components or ignore unwanted components from monitoring.
