Linux

This page assumes that you have decided to install UnPoller on to an existing Linux operating system.

First#

Make sure you have set up a user on your controller for UnPoller to poll. You must have a working (and supported) version of Grafana and at least one of InfluxDB or Prometheus. If you don't have them, follow these instructions for installing InfluxDB and Grafana.


Installation#

Linux repository hosting provided by packagecloud

warning

JFrog Bintray shut down and packages are no longer available from that repo. Packages are now on PackageCloud.io. See below for how to install that repo!

This works on any system with apt or yum. If your system does not use APT or YUM, then download a package from the Releases page. Install the Go Lift package repo and UnPoller with this command:

curl -s https://golift.io/repo.sh | sudo bash -s - unpoller

Maintenance#

See Application Configuration and the example config file for additional post-install configuration information.

  • Edit the config file after installing the package, and correct the authentication information for your setup:
    sudo nano /etc/unpoller/up.conf
    # or
    sudo vi /etc/unpoller/up.conf
important

When configuring make sure that you do not include :8443 on the url of the controller if you are using unifios. Those are: UDM Pro, UDM, UXG, or CkoudKey with recent firmware.

  • Restart the service:
    sudo systemctl restart unpoller
  • Check the log:
    tail -f -n100 /var/log/syslog /var/log/messages | grep unpoller

Next Steps#

  1. Don't forget the Grafana Plugins.
  2. Finish Setting-up Grafana.
