The Memcached sensor is automatically deployed and installed after you install the Instana agent.
To enable in-depth metric monitoring, the agent requires user credentials to access monitoring information. You can configure it in the agent here
com.instana.plugin.memcached: user: '' password: ''
To view the metrics, select Infrastructure in the sidebar of the Instana User interface, click a specific monitored host, and then you can see a host dashboard with all the collected metrics and monitored processes.

For each sensor, there is a curated knowledgebase of health signatures that are evaluated continuously against the incoming metrics and are used to raise issues or incidents depending on user impact.
Built-in events trigger issues or incidents based on failing health signatures on entities, and custom events trigger issues or incidents based on the thresholds of an individual metric of any given entity.
For information about built-events for the Memcached sensor, see
the Built-in events reference.Fixed
