Import plugins

Damit über die WebGUI die Services zur Überwachung eingerichtet werden können, ist es notwendig, die verfügbaren Bloonix-Plugins in die Datenbank zu importieren. Hierzu muss zunächst das Paket bloonix-plugin-config auf dem Server installiert werden, auf dem Sie die Bloonix-WebGUI installiert und konfiguriert haben:

It's necessary to import the plugin meta data into database of Bloonix, so that the services can be configured of the WebGUI. To do that you have to install the package __ bloonix plugin config __ on the server where the Bloonix-WebGUI installed. If the WebGUI is installed on multiple servers then you need to install the package on only one server.

# Debian
apt-get install bloonix-plugin-config
# Red Hat / CentOS / Fedora
yum install bloonix-plugin-config
zypper install bloonix-plugin-config

The command to import the plugins into the database is:

bloonix-load-plugins --load-all

Please note that the command is automatically called after the installation and after updates.
