Take control over your small server

Installation on Red Hat, Fedora and derivatives


Users on Fedora systems are able to install Monitorix using directly the official repositories. Therefore a simple command like the following should suffice:

# yum install monitorix

Red Hat/CentOS/Rocky Linux

Install first the EPEL repository and then install Monitorix using yum:

# yum install epel-release
# yum install monitorix rrdtool-perl perl-Config-General perl-LWP-Protocol-https perl-LWP-UserAgent-Determined perl-XML-LibXML perl-HTTP-Server-Simple

Obsolete (EOL) Red Hat/CentOS Linux

If you are still using EOL versions of Red Hat or CentOS systems (EL4, EL5 or EL6), then you might want to download the RPMs directly from the downloads page. You probably will have to satisfy the dependences manually, or tune your system repositories to point to the upstream archived repositories.

After installation

Once succesfully installed, take a look into the configuration file /etc/monitorix/monitorix.conf and create your own new configuration file to set the options according your system and enable or disable graphs. Please, read this FAQ to know how to configure Monitorix properly.

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.
