Re: Monitor Server Updates


Thanks for raising this request. Please find attached the plugin script for monitoring server updates. Follow the steps below to install and add the plugin monitor:

1. Log in to Site24x7 and install the latest version of the Linux agent.

2. Download the attachment check_updates.zip. 

3. Unzip the attached file into the /plugins folder (/opt/site24x7/monagent/plugins/).

In the next agent data collection, the plugin will be discovered and marked up for monitoring. You can see the monitor under Server > Plugin Integrations in the Site24x7 web client.

Hope this helps. For further queries, if any, please comment in the below thread.
