Remote Monitoring & Management Help

Install the Linux Monitoring Agent

Once the repository reference is added to /etc/apt/sources and the Release.key is appended to the trusted keys list the Agent installation can begin.

The first step is to update the local package index with any changes that may have been made to the repositories and this can be achieved with the apt-get update command.

# apt-get update

After the indexes have updated the Linux Monitoring Agent can be installed using apt-get install rmmagent

# apt-get install rmmagent

# apt-get install rmmagent
