Lesson: Install an agent

We’re changing our user interface. Some info may not yet be up to date. Please check From classic to new UI.

In this lesson you’ll learn how to get install an Uptrends Infra agent in your network

Please install at least one agent in order to be able to monitor your infrastructure. You can install a one or more agents using the same Uptrends Infra account. In order to install the agent, you need a server or PC running either Microsoft Windows or Linux.

  1. Download the Uptrends Infra agent software. Depending on your operating system, check these pages for the corresponding download: Windows agent and Linux agent. Another option is to download the installer software within the Uptrends app. Log into the app then go to the menu Infrastructure > + Install agent and follow the instructions.
  2. Start the installer and confirm the license agreement.
  3. Register the agent by providing your username (e.g. your e-mail address) and your password. When you register an agent, it will automatically start measuring disk space, network traffic, CPU performance and memory usage on that machine.

Each time you register an agent on a server, a new device automatically shows up in the device list in your account, so we can start monitoring that server right away. You can do the same thing for each server you want to monitor, but typically you can have one agent monitoring multiple devices.

The actual things that are monitored on those devices are called sensors. For a server device, default sensors for processor time (CPU usage), available memory, free disk space, and network usage will be created, but you can remove those and add other ones if you want.
