Subject How do I send metadata from my RaspberryPi to my IoT gateway?
Date Sun, 18 Nov 2018 10:54:59 GMT

On the Edgent documentations is mentioned:

 "You can send data from an Edgent application to your back-end system when
you need to perform analysis that cannot be performed on the edge device,
such as:

Running a complex analytic algorithm that requires more resources, such as
CPU or memory, than are available on the edge device." (

I understood that the Edgent daemon on the device is constantly monitoring
its properties (CPU and memory) and this daemon decides to not perform the
analytics on the RPi when it has lack of resource but perform on a layer
above. Is it right?

How can I implement a program using Edgent to send this type of metadata to
a layer above? Let's say I want to sent metadata regarding CPU, memory and
storage usage from the RPi to an IoT gateway.
