Symptom: When you try to install the Node JS V8 data collector and you run the npm install nodejs_dc/ibmapm.tgz command, you encounter the following error, for example:
Error: EACCES: permission denied, open '/root/Node/node_modules/appmetrics/install.log'
gyp WARN EACCES user "root" does not have permission to access the dev dir "/root/.node-gyp/8.11.3"
gyp WARN EACCES attempting to reinstall using temporary dev dir "/root/Node/node_modules/appmetrics/.node-gyp"
This error occurs because appmetrics prevents you from installing appmetrics as as a root user.
Solution: This is a known issue with appmetrics. To install packages as a root user, run the npm -g config set user root command before you run the npm install command.
