Quick Start - Debian / Ubuntu
To get started, install the OpsDash Smart Agent in any of the following ways:
1) Add the RapidLoop APT repo:
1
echo "deb http://packages.rapidloop.com/debian stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/rapidloop.list
Copied!
2) Import the RapidLoop signing key:
1
sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 1E1BACF5
Copied!
If this step fails (the keyserver is down, for example), then you can also do it this way:
1
wget https://packages.rapidloop.com/gpg-pubkey-rapidloop.asc

sudo apt-key add gpg-pubkey-rapidloop.asc
Copied!
3) Fetch the RapidLoop package information:

1
sudo vim /etc/opsdash/agent.cfg
Copied!
7) Start the agent:
1
sudo service opsdash-agent start
