  • The Install script requires wget to retrieve content, and curl to test/verify access to our data collection servers in the US at IP address or in the EU at over port 443, either directly or through a corporate proxy.

Note: The Linux agent/agentless approach requires a user with root permissions to get PID-to-network mapping, certain hardware details, and data on logical/physical disk volumes. Become root user either through "sudo -s" or "su", most systems use sudo.  


Launch the application from your Partner Dashboard or login directly here. Open the Settings page by clicking the username in the upper right-hand corner and select Settings. Navigate to Agent Setup > Assess and select the Linux tab. 

Note: the commands below represent our US infrastructure. If you are using our EU infrastructure copy and paste the commands directly from your assessment. 

Step 1:  Export your customer key.


Step 2:  Execute the following command to install an agent.

sh <(curl -s

If FQDN resolution is not permitted use the command below.

sh <(curl -s -k


If you want to route the data through your own proxy server, click the checkbox as shown in the image below, and use the following command.

sh <(curl --proxy -s <> <proxy_port>


If you want to use your own proxy server and the server requires authentication, click the designated checkbox and use the following, updated command.

sh <(curl --proxy --proxy-user username:password -s <> <proxy_port> <user_name> <password>


Deploy from Central Repository:

Configuration of Agent

The agent can be configured while installed or after. The following environment variables are used to configure. If they are set during install, they will be used to configure. Otherwise, the customer must run /usr/local/cloudamize/bin/

Environment variables can be set using the “export” command in bash, or when running a command. Placement of env set is important when running during command. Note, sudo usually clears env variables.
