EC2 Monitoring

Agent Automatic Installation.

If automatic installation of agent on EC2 instances is failed please check following.

1. Check if EC2 instance runs Linux OS,  automatic installation for Windows instances is not supported. – You can install a windows agent manually and add monitors from dashboard instead.
2. SSH port have to be open on port 22 – in case ssh is on other port or is behind firewall automatic installation of agent will fail. – You can manually install agent on his server and setup monitors from dashboard himself
3. Check if the key provided for EC2 account is for root user – This is required for automatic installation of agent and in general it is required to run Monitis agent under root user.
