TLDR abhinav wants to monitor memory consumption in their NodeJS app using host metrics. Srikanth advises that they can track it using the `process_memory_usage` metric.
I wanna know if my nodeJs app is consuming the memory
No, you don’t need to install the infra agent if you are already using the host metrics. If you want to see `process_memory_usage` which will contain the command used to start the process and search for the appropriate node process.
I am using host metrics and puttig it on grafana
I didn’t understand. What are you trying to convey?
I have only installed APM for my nodeJS app and not the infra agent of signoz
yet i want to know the reason of memory leak
how can i create such a dashboard for the same?
> yet i want to know the reason of memory leak
The dashboard can only help you know the current memory usage. They will not tell you the reason for the memory leak. As I mentioned earlier, if you are already using the package, you do not need to run the “infra agent” to collect system or process memory usage. There will be a metric named `process_memory_usage` which can be used to track the memory consumption of a particular kind of process.
