Updating, Replacing or Downgrading Hyperic System Plugins

Updating, Replacing or Downgrading Hyperic System Plugins

Sometimes you have an updated Hyperic plugin that you need to replace with a different version on an agent and it will not push for various reasons. To get around this just copy the new plugin file directly to /opt/hyperic/hyperic-hqee-agent/bundles/agent-5.7.0/pdk/plugins on the agent machine and restart the agent service (service hyperic-hqee-agent restart). At this point you are good to go.

Pushing New Plugin to Hyperic Agents

If you ever update a plugin on your Hyperic Server you may need to push it out to your Hyperic Agents. To do this find you Hyperic Agent under the Servers group. It should look like <Server Name> HQ Agent 5.0.0. Select this and go to the Views tab. From here select Agent Commands and Push Plugin. After pushing your plugin you will need to restart the agent using the same Agent Commands section.

To do this go to Administration > Escalation Schemes Configuration. Next Let’s go ahead and build the process of…

Agentless / Network Monitoring with Hyperic

Agentless / Network Monitoring with Hyperic

So… I’ve installed Hyperic and am using it to monitor a bunch of stuff (Disk Space, RAM, CPU, Services) on boxes that I have installed the Hyperic Agent on but I really want to just do a simple ping against a bunch of network devices for network monitoring…. Looking at the UI it is not at all obvious how I would accomplish such a task. The answer is you have to run the job against an agent, and here’s how…
