Install the Panopta Agent
Direct link to topic in this publication:

On this page


Install an Agent on a new server

You can install the Agent on a server and it will automatically be added to your Panopta account. This is a helpful option for installing the Agent on a number of servers at once to import into Panopta. You can do this by clicking + Add from the main navigation header, and then selecting Advanced Instance.



You will be prompted to choose your operating system, and once you do, a command will be generated that you can run manually on each of your servers or through your configuration management tool, like Chef or Puppet.
Information Script reusability 
This script is generic for your account - you can use it on any new server you'd like to add to Panopta and it will obtain its own distinct key during the installation process.

This command will install the Agent, obtain a server key, add the server to Panopta, and begin reporting metrics.

Install the Agent on a server already in Panopta

On the Instance Details page, select Install Agent to install the Panopta Agent. 

Information Note: The new Instance Details page is currently in beta. Contact support@panopta.com for more details.




Clicking Install Agent will give you a few prompts. The first being to select the OS of the server on which you are installing the Agent.


After selecting the OS, you have the option to either do a Quick Install or a Manual Install. The Quick Install tab provides a quick script for you to run which will download the Agent from our repository and link the Agent to your account. It will start reporting metrics in minutes, which you will be able to see in the control panel. Selecting the Manual Install tab will provide several commands that you must run individually to download and install the Agent to your server. 

Warning This version of the script has a unique key for this one instance only! Do not use the same script to try to install other Agents. A key is generated for each server.
