You can install Uptime Infrastructure Monitor Agents for Linux using the RPM utility or the Debian package management utility (dpkg). These enable you to easily update and perform mass installations of Agents.

Before trying to install an agent, ensure that the RPM or dpkg utilities are installed and in the path by typing which rpm or which dpkg at the command line.

To install an agent on a Linux system, do the following:

  1. Log into the system as user root.
  2. Using Telnet or FTP, transfer the .rpm or .deb file containing the Agent to the system.
  3. Type one of the following at the command line:
    • rpm -i <agentName> if you are using the RPM utility
    • dpkg -i <agentName> if you are using the dpkg utility
      Where <agentName> is the name of the .rpm or .deb file for the Agent that you are installing (e.g., uptimeagent-6.0.0-linux-x86_64.rpm or uptimeagent-linux_5.0.1_amd64.deb).
