I have both the Log Analytics (OMS) agent for Linux and collectd installed on a on-prem Ubuntu VM.
I'm sending various on-prem metrics, mostly ping and snmp, to Azure.
Collectd sends its data to the OMS agent on port 26000 (write_http), as explained in this page:
I noticed that the TimeGenerated timestamps of my metrics in Azure do not match those generated by collectd.
For ex. with ping.
Collectd is configured to ping a host every 10 sec.
The TimeGenerated timestamps in collectd go like:
10:34:57, value 0.18210:34:47, value 0.26610:34:37, value 0.181
And when the metrics are in Azure, this is what I see:
Multiple metrics have the same timestamps, 10:35:06 in this example.
I don't understand why the TimeGenerated timestamps get modified on the way to Azure...
