Foglight for Virtualization Enterprise Edition 8.9 - Upgrade Guide

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, 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.

Deploying an agent package through the Agent Managers dashboard

1
On the navigation panel, under Dashboards, select Administration > Agents > Agent Managers.
3
Click Deploy Agent Package in the toolbar.
The Deploy Agent Package dialog wizard opens.
The entries that appear in the Agent Packages list include only those agent packages whose platform is compatible with the platform of the hosts you selected in Step 2. For example, if the host runs a particular Windows OS, the list contains only the agent packages that include the agent processes that can run on that Windows OS.
Optional — To see all packages that are available for deployment, including those are not compatible with the selected hosts, select Show Packages for All Platforms.
Click Next.
5
On the Summary page, review the choices you have made. Click Finish.
The task appears in the Tasks list. Use the Tasks list to follow the progress and determine the status of the task.
