"remote collector" / "agent for a remote collector" using a deb package?

How can I install a "remote collector" or an "agent for a remote collector" using a deb package for systems like Ubuntu/Debian?

  • Here we assume we already have obtained the .deb package and we have locally saved it in "/tmp/takipi.deb". If name and locations are different please adjust the commands below to reflect this

    Then in order to perform the installation of these configuration, we need an extra step after the .deb package is been installed.

    step 1- .deb package installation

    this can be performed with the following command:

       "dpkg -i /tmp/takipi.deb"

     

    2- additional package configuration

    depending the role of our box/container we can use one of the following options 2a or 2b:

     

    2a- .deb packaged configuration for "remote collector"

      "sudo <TAKIPI_HOME>/etc/takipi-setup-package \
    <INSTALLATION_KEY> \
    --listen_on_port=<COLLECTOR_PORT>

    in this command we need to replace the placeholders between "<>" with the appropriate values:

    • <INSTALLATION_KEY>: this is the Secret Key of your installation (i.e. S12345#......#1234)
    • <REMOTE_COLLECTOR_HOST>: this is the IP / FYHN of the collector host
    • <COLLECTOR_PORT>: this is the tcp port the collector process listens to (by default: 6060).

     

    2b- .deb packaged configuration for "agent for a remote collector"

      "sudo <TAKIPI_HOME>/etc/takipi-setup-package \
    <INSTALLATION_KEY> \
    --daemon_host=<REMOTE_COLLECTOR_HOST> \
    --daemon_port=<REMOTE_COLLECTOR_PORT>

             in this command we need to replace the placeholders between "<>" with the appropriate values:

    • <INSTALLATION_KEY>: this is the Secret Key of your installation (i.e. S12345#......#1234)
    • <REMOTE_COLLECTOR_HOST>: this is the IP / FYHN of the collector host
    • <REMOTE_COLLECTOR_PORT>: this is the tcp port the collector process listens to in the collector host (by default: 6060)
