Installation

The simplest way to get started is by pulling down our installer script.

For Debian-based systems, including Ubuntu:

curl -s https://YOUR-API-KEY@www.hostedgraphite.com/agent/installer/deb/ | sudo sh

   

or for RHEL-based systems:

curl -s https://YOUR-API-KEY@www.hostedgraphite.com/agent/installer/rpm/ | sudo sh

   

If you would like to set up installation and configuration via Puppet, Chef or a similar configuration management system, see our repository install instructions.

Once your agent is sending metrics, you will find it in your Agent list, along with a link to an auto-generated Base Metrics dashboard in Grafana named Hosted Graphite Agent (Base).

    

Platforms

We support the following stable OS releases on 64-bit machines:

  • CentOS 6 and later (covering the RedHat family);
  • Debian Wheezy and later;
  • Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and later.

These should cover most installs on RHEL, CentOS, Amazon Linux, and Debian/Ubuntu family platforms.
