Hey there, @dogsbody—Looks like we have a classic miscommunication here.
@stefan_garnham Thanks for jumping in and providing what you know! Our experts here on the New Relic side appreciate the help!
I think what @dogsbody is looking for is: Will the pesky
newrelic-sysmond daemon keep on running and clog things up for ~200 customers that will be affected by Servers EOL?
The short answer is, when that 'Servers' tab goes away, that daemon will keep on doing it's thing.
However, the worst case scenario we are looking at is that IF the ingest shuts off and that daemon sits and stores and stores and stores, it will be a huge strain. BUT the good news is that this particular daemon will only be collecting 5 minutes of data at the time of EOL. Then it purges and starts on the newest 5 minutes.
There is an uninstall process that you can share! You can distribute this document to your ~200 customers:
and let them know that when that 'Servers' tab disappears, they can simply uninstall the daemon. That way it won't take much of your system's resources, and minimal impact is to be expected.
I hope that gets you closer to the answer you need! Let us know.
