Linux Installation

  1. To install OverOps on a Linux machine run the following one-liner. This bash shell command downloads the OverOps bundle and runs the installation script. Replace <MyKey> placeholder with your installation key.
    With Wget

    wget -O - -o /dev/null | sudo bash /dev/stdin -i --sk=<MyKey>

    Or with cURL

    curl -sL /dev/null | sudo bash /dev/stdin -i --sk=<MyKey>

  2. Connect the OverOps agent to your processes: add the following value to your JVM argument and restart your Java/Scala application:
    -agentlib:TakipiAgentImportant: -agentlib:TakipiAgent is a JVM argument and should be written before -jar / -cp (classpath) arguments.

  3. Make sure OverOps is up and running on your system: head back to, and click 
If the installation was successful, a “OverOps is active” message will be displayed, and a green “Monitoring” message will appear next to your JVM(s).


Running behind a Proxy server?

If you’re running behind a proxy server, you can enter its address by setting the optional MyProxyAddress value (e.g. http://user:pass@

wget -e http_proxy=<MyProxyAddress> -e https_proxy=<MyProxyAddress> -O - -o /dev/null | sudo bash /dev/stdin -i --sk=<MyKey> --https_proxy=<MyProxyAddress> -d; source /opt/takipi/etc/takipi-auto-agentcurl -x <MyProxyAddress> -s /dev/null | sudo bash /dev/stdin -i --sk=<MyKey> --https_proxy=<MyProxyAddress> -d; source /opt/takipi/etc/takipi-auto-agent

* Notice the address needs to be entered twice – once for the actual cURL command, and the second one for the installation script itself.
