Linux Monitoring Agent Version 2

A number of changes were introduced in Linux Monitoring Agent Version 2. From this release the Agent uses real-time architecture for faster Agent responsiveness and more 24x7 Check frequency options (up to 120 minutes). Linux Monitoring Agent Version 2 installs via .deb and .rpm packages, instead of a repository. This not only simplifies the deployment process, particularly when using the Remote Worker Site Installation Package, but also allows you to update the Agent through the Dashboard as well as on the server itself.

Linux Monitoring Agent Version 2 also brought:

  • Support for modern 64-bit Linux distributions
  • Linux Automated Tasks
  • Support for Remote Worker Site Installation Package installations
  • Update the Agent from the Dashboard
  • Uninstall the Agent from the Dashboard

As Linux Monitoring Agent Version 2 uses real-time architecture and protocols it is not compatible with Linux Monitoring Agent Version 1. If upgrading from version 1 to version 2 please read the Linux Monitoring Agent Migration (going from v1 to v2) section.
