OP5 Monitor collects data by running plugins. Checks can be agentless or through agents and APIs.

NRPE is an agent distributed with Linux operating systems, while NSClient++ is an agent that is installed on Windows servers.

Note: ITRS does not provide support on agents installed on different Linux distributions. Verify with the package manager in your Linux distribution and the support of the agent on the specific OS.

The table above is the verification of our plugin working with the specific agent in the base OS.

SNMP is limited to the configuration on the remote server for the specific check to be performed on that system.

Containerised environment support

ITRS supports running OP5 Monitor Slim Poller in the following containerised environments.

Each component should meet the documented minimum operating system requirements.

Compatibility and lifecycle

This section outlines all the changes to ITRS OP5 Monitor compatibility and lifecycle.

Release tracks

With OP5 Monitor, there are two supported release tracks: Standard and Rolling.

Standard (Default)

By default, new installations of OP5 Monitor come with the standard release track enabled.

With the standard release track, a new release is done at a regular interval. This release consists of new features and larger collection of issues fixed or improvements. The standard product release version follows this format 9.x.

See ITRS OP5 Monitor 9.x Release Notes.

Rolling (Opt-in)

The rolling release is continuously updating with new fixes and improvements being released as soon as they are ready and have gone through the internal quality assurance process. As a result, if one enables the rolling release track, one can expect more frequent, smaller updates, with fixes and improvements available as soon as possible.

The rolling release track is suitable for deployments where updates to the system are done on a very regular basis, and when it is prioritised to get the latest fixes and improvements as quickly as possible. It is also possible to temporarily enable the rolling release track, if there is interest in getting a specific change as soon as possible, get the latest changes, and then move back to the standard release track for future releases.

On the rolling release, the release version follows this date format 9rolling-2022.03.22.

See the rolling release notes for OP5 Monitor 9.0.

Enable rolling release

To enable the rolling release, execute dnf install op5-release-rolling in the command line of your server or virtual machine. Following enablement of the rolling release track, an update to the system can be done by executing dnf clean all && dnf update.

Disable rolling release

To disable the rolling release track, execute dnf remove op5-release-rolling.

This removes the dnf repository definitions for the rolling release track, leaving only the definition for the standard release track. Upon the next standard release, any packages will be updated as appropriate when performing a dnf update on the system.
