How does Linux monitoring work?

Any root user or non-root user can install our Linux agent. Installing the Linux agent is a one-step process. You can also bulk install the agent onto multiple machines using Chef, Puppet, SaltStack, or Ansible.

Once the installation is successful, performance metrics including CPU, memory, and disk usage will be collected and sent to the Site24x7 data center, and you can view these metrics in the Site24x7 web client. Set thresholds and become instantly notified of any breach via email, SMS, or any of our third-party integrations like Slack and PagerDuty.
