In this blog post we will see how to download and install Hyperic agent on a windows machine.
Download the agent from the link
Run the installer
Enter the information of the hyperic server host
Leave the port number as default if you haven’t made any changes while installing Hyperic Server
Enter the login information used to log in into hyperic or the account through which the agent talks to the hyperic server
Choose how the agent communicates with the server
If an agent is configured for unidirectional communication, the Hyperic Server does not establish a connection to the agent. Instead, at startup, the agent establishes a persistent connection to the Hyperic Server, and polls the server periodically for server communication.
Choose if the communication with the server has to be secure
Accept the license agreement
Choose the installation folder
And this completes installation
Now login into the hyperic server and see the recently discovered portlet to find all the auto discovered resources
