Packages for EOL Ubuntu distributions are no longer receiving any updates, but are still available for your use.
The following EOL releases have agent packages:
- Precise 12.04
You can install the agent automatically using our shell script, or with our Puppet, Chef, Ansible and Salt modules. See automatically scaling and deploying the agent.
- A device created in your Server Density account (Find out how to create a device in the UI)
- sudo (root access) is required but the agent runs as its own user (sd-agent) once installed.
- The agent requires sysstat to be installed to collect some key metrics. This will be installed as a dependency during installation.
- Our repository requires that apt-transport-https be installed before adding to your sources list. You can install apt-transport-https with the command:
apt-get install apt-transport-https
