Modifying an agent

Modifying the ITRS Infrastructure Agent

The ITRS Infrastructure Agent is the recommended monitoring agent to use. It comes with a set of default plugins to be able to monitor many aspects of your devices, and also supports adding custom plugins. See Infrastructure Agent Configuration for details, and then follow the instructions below in the Opsview Monitor UI (assuming a new agent command check_example was added).

UI configuration

  1. Add a new Servicecheck with the following configuration:
Name: Custom Check
Plugin: `check_nrpe`
Parameters: `-H $HOSTADDRESS$ -c check_example -a '<plugin arguments>'`
  1. Now add this Servicecheck to the Host you wish to monitor and Apply Changes to bring the configuration into use.

End of life for Opsview Agent

The Opsview Agent is deprecated and is no longer supported, so the steps for configuring it are no longer relevant in this version. You can still access the older version of the documentation to view the steps for reference, but we recommend that you use the ITRS Infrastructure Agent.

Please follow the instructions above for the most up-to-date information.
