After that, you can create access for your team mates and configure notifications.

Connect Your First Agent

First of all, create an account: signup on Bleemeo. We offer free trial, no credit card is needed to create an account on Bleemeo.

After login, the home page shows you the command to run on your server to install agent. It’s the wget -qO- https://get.bleemeo.com/[...] | sh. This command is customized for your account, it allows you to install and configure Bleemeo agent in one line.

When run on your server, this command will install the Bleemeo agent on your system, configure it and start it. Some actions need root privilege to run, sudo or su password will be asked when such privileges are needed.

During installation, the Bleemeo agent will automatically discover services running on your server, gather corresponding metrics every 10 seconds and sent them in real-time to Bleemeo Cloud platform over a secure channel.

You can see all information of your newly registered server on its details page, available at agent list.

Create Access for your Team Mates

To invite your team mates go to Users Management. Click on plus_user_btn and fill the form. Once done, an email is sent to the new user with instruction to set its password.

You may also want to change the group this new user belong to. Still on Users Management, click on the username. The details view of a user has two buttons Grant Admin and Grant Manager (or Revoke Admin / Revoke Manager if the corresponding group was already granted).

The admin group allows users to manage the account and other users.

The manager group allows users to manage agents, dashboards, actions on event… It covers change to all objects except the account and users.

Configure Notifications

Bleemeo define by default thresholds on key metrics like CPU usage, memory usage, disk space… Complete list of thresholds is available on this page. When the threshold is exceeded, an event is created. By default Bleemeo will send an email notification for those events to the signup email address.

You can customize the default settings to add other people or refine the way you get notified on Notifications page.
