ITRS Opsview Cloud Documentation

Supported operating systems

Supported platform Copied

ITRS Opsview supports the following Linux distributions for your Opsview Monitor environment. You must verify that your intended platform is supported in the list below prior to installation.


For Opsview to run correctly, all Opsview components on all servers must be installed from the same release repository. Mixing Opsview component versions from different releases, such as using opsview-datastore from 6.8.x and opsview-messagequeue from 6.7.x, is not supported.

Opsview Collectors must also be installed from the same release repository as the core servers, whether they are deploy-based or are Remote Collectors. The only exception to this is the Opsview agent installed on monitored devices. The agent version does not need to match the exact Opsview version you’re using. However, it is always recommended to install the latest version of the agent whenever possible.

Operating system Version supported Architecture Status FIPS support
Debian 10.x (Buster) 64-bit Supported Unsupported
CentOS 7.x 64-bit Supported Supported
RHEL 7.x 64-bit Supported Supported
RHEL 8.x 64-bit Supported Supported (requires additional configuration; see FIPS compatibilities)

The Opsview Monitor software is tested against all latest package updates to include major fixes and security updates across all distributions. It is recommended you ensure that your target platform has the most up-to-date packages, fixes and so on. Furthermore, ensure you use the latest stable release of your distribution unless stated elsewhere in your documentation that is needed to successfully run Opsview Monitor.

Database support differs depending on operating system.

Virtualization Copied

Opsview Monitor supports the following virtualisation technologies in combination with supported operating systems (see above); this is limited to our ability to test and diagnose issues. You must verify that your intended virtualisation platform is supported in the following list:

Federal Information Processing Standards (FIPS) Copied

Opsview Monitor will run on specific FIPS-compliant operating systems with FIPS mode enabled (see the support table above). Different packages may be installed on FIPS-enabled systems. This is managed automatically by opsview-deploy, so you can follow the usual installation instructions.


To enable FIPS on a system which already has Opsview installed, please contact the Customer Success team.
