The ECmanaged Agent is the software that enables monitoring of different metrics such as CPU, RAM, Disk, etc.
Our agent is also used for the orchestration and automation of IT tasks like deploying scripts simultaneously on multiple Cloud servers.
It is installed by default in the new Cloud servers you create through ECmanaged. However, it is not installed in those Cloud servers that you created earlier. You can use the package installer to install the ECM agent in the servers, Cloud or external legacy servers, which already exist on your provider or your facility.
The ECM Agent is written in Python, so it's easily deployable on all platforms. In addition, our agent is based on the XMPP (Extensible Messaging and Presence) Protocol, a set of open technologies for instant messaging, presence, collaboration, lightweight middleware, content syndication, and generalized routing of XML data. We have developed the ECmanaged agent as an "open source" . You can inspect the checkout or make your contributions at: github.com/ecmanaged/ECM Agent. The ECmanaged agent can be installed easily on Linux or Windows servers.
For Linux servers, copy and paste this command line instruction:
wget http://bootstrap.ecmanaged.com/agent/linux -O - | sudo sh
