# Debian / Ubuntu

# Red Hat / CentOS / Fedora
yum install bloonix-agent
# SuSE / SLES
zypper install bloonix-agent

Bloonix-Agent configuration

The configuration file of the agent:

/etc/bloonix/agent/main.conf

To monitor the local system, you have to configure two sections.

Section: server

Example configuration:

server {
    host p1.bloonix.de, s1.bloonix.de
    port 5460
    mode failover
    ssl_verify_mode peer

    # Debian / SuSE / SLES
    ssl_ca_path /etc/ssl/certs

    # Red Hat / CentOS / Fedora
    ssl_ca_file /etc/pki/tls/certs/ca-bundle.crt
}

Please replace the hostnames in the section _server__ with the hostname or ip address of the host where the Bloonix-Server were installed.

Notice: If the Bloonix-Server uses a self signed certificate then you have to set the SSL parameter ssl_verify_peer to none, otherwise the Bloonix-Agent throws an error because the agent is unable to validate the certificate.

Section: host

Example configuration:

host {
    host_id 12345
    password secret
}

In the section host it is configured the Host which was furnished in the WebGUI. Put down the Host-ID and the password. Then you can restart the agent, so that this is begun with the new configuration.

/etc/init.d/bloonix-agent restart
# or
systemctl restart bloonix-agent.service

If this agent is a central agent to monitor multiple hosts, as for example Router and Switches by SNMP, you can also put down these hosts.

host {
    host_id 12345
    password secret
}
host {
    host_id 12346
    password secret
}
host {
    host_id 12347
    password secret
}
