Facing issue when running npm install -g @aws/opensearch-perftop command

Hi Team,

Could you please help me to fix the below issue…

My Requirement is :: Need to see the metrics like cpu_utilization etc… in dashboard…

  1. I was trying to install Perftop to get the Performance Analyzer plugin…
    npm install -g @aws/opensearch-perftop

  2. Before this i have installed the docker and pulled the OpenSearch and OpenSearchDashboard by using below commands and able to launch the OpenSearchDashboard (http://x.x.x.x:5601/)
    sudo apt install docker.io
    sudo docker pull opensearchproject/opensearch:1.1.0
    sudo docker pull opensearchproject/opensearch-dashboards:1.1.0

Hi @rhema_135

Looks like those instructions are incorrect. I don’t think that perftop for opensearch has actually been released to npm. See:

Hi @rhema_135

Currently, OpenSearch Perftop has not been released with npm as @searchymcsearchface mentioned. Installation instructions are updated now. Executables that are available on release page can be used for installing perftop. Instructions can be found here.
