How to download and install the Linux monitoring agent via Docker

The Linux monitoring agent can be installed via Docker using two methods:

  1. Docker Hub
  2. Site24x7 web client

Installation via Site24x7's web console:

  1. Log in to Site24x7 and go to Server > Server Monitor > Servers + > Linux and select Docker Agent.
  2. Click Copy to Clipboard and execute the command given in the web client. 

By default, the docker.sock file will be in the location /var/run/docker.sock. If it is present in a different location, change the location accordingly and execute the command given in the web client.

Once the agent is installed, you can view the monitor under Server > Server Monitor > Servers.

The docker agent can also be installed in multiple machines in one go using one of our bulk deployment methods: AWS ECS and Kubernetes.
