Installation on Red Hat, Fedora and CentOS Linux
Installation on a Fedora Linux
Users of newer Fedora versions are able to install Monitorix using directly the official repositories. Therefore a simple command like the following should suffice:
# yum install monitorix
Installation on a RedHat/CentOS Linux
Install first the EPEL repository and then install Monitorix using
# yum install epel-release # yum install monitorix
yum fails when installing one of the packages (probably in EL4 or EL5 only), then you could try to get them manually from this additional repository:
- Keep your systems clean from permanent installations of third party repositories.
- Keep these repositories always as disabled and only enable them when required.
Once succesfully installed, take a look into the configuration file
/etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf to set the options according your system and enable or disable graphs.
Finally start Monitorix with:
# service monitorix start
At this point, Monitorix will start gathering the system information based on its configuration and after some minutes, you should be able to see the results from your favorite browser pointing it at:
Notes after installation
If your system has SELinux enabled it is possible your Monitorix graphs won't be visible and you get lot of messages in
/var/log/audit/audit.log and/or in
/var/log/messages about access denied to the RRD database files.
Take the proper actions to remedy this situation.
