The Opsview Debian/Ubuntu agent is available for download, pre-packaged from the link below:


Compiling and Packaging a Debian/Ubuntu Agent

This page details how to build the Debian and Ubuntu agents and assumes some basic understanding on compilation on these platforms.

From the source repository


Basic Steps

The follow these steps:

cd $HOME
test -d svnroot || mkdir svnroot 
cd svnroot
svn co https://secure.opsview.com/svn/opsview/trunk opsview
cd opsview
make version 
cd opsview-base


Additional perl/script plugins can be added into the agent by putting the code into the altinity-plugins directory and also adding an entry into the Makefile (search for ALTINITYPLUG in the Makefile to see an example).

Appropriate changes will also need to be made to the nrpe.cfg.in file so the new plugins are automatically included within the agent configuration.
