Linux Agent Installation

Linux servers often run the most critical applications. Proactive monitoring leads to increased uptime and faster fault resolution. The Linux Agent adds monitoring, alerting and reporting on the status of the Linux servers to the N-sight RMM Dashboard.

Before you install the Agent, ensure you have allowed access to the required URLs. For more information, see Network Connectivity Requirements.

The Linux Agent collects all the hardware and software information from the server and uploads it to the N-sight RMM Dashboard. The collected information is available in the Asset Tracking section under the Client and site where the device is registered. All Linux Agent installations are server installations and all Linux servers display in the Server and Mixed sections of the N-sight RMM Dashboard.

You can install the Agent using the following methods:

Method Description
Add a Device A one-click Remote Worker installer package to deploy on multiple devices
Site Installation Package Create a one-click Remote Worker installer package to deploy on multiple devices
Manual Installation Download the Agent from the N-sight RMM Dashboard, run and then register the Agent

After you install the Agent, you configure the Agent Settings using the N-sight RMM Dashboard or the Agent console.

You can use the User Audit Report and the Device Inventory Report to determine when the Agent was installed on a device.

To optimize installation time and ensure Check and Automated Task consistency across devices, you can Configure default Monitoring Templates for installation.
