NOTE: Foglight Resource Optimizer provides recommendations for changes in the VMware® or Hyper-V® environments, to make more efficient the use of resources. This requires that the VMware or Hyper-V agent is configured with a user that has elevated privileges, beyond the read-only privileges required for monitoring. For a list of privileges required for the VMware or Hyper-V agent, refer to section “Configuring Monitoring Agents for Data Collection” in the Foglight for VMware User and Reference Guide and Foglight for Hyper-V User and Reference Guide, respectively.

Appendix: Deploying an agent package using the browser interface

This section explains how to deploy an agent package using the browser interface. This method is an alternative to using the command-line interface.

In Foglight for Virtualization, Enterprise Edition, you can use the command-line interface to deploy an agent package for an upgraded cartridge, or you can use the browser interface.

Before you can deploy an agent package on a machine, you must first install the Agent Manager and the relevant agent package on that machine.

Use the Agent Managers dashboard to deploy one agent package at a time, or to deploy the agent package to multiple hosts. You can also deploy agent packages to a single host from the Agent Status page.
