3. Installation

EMG SNMP Agent installation includes five steps:

Download software
Get license key
Install software
Configure software
Start agent

3.1 Download software

Contact your distributor or Nordic Messaging Technologies in order to get instructions how to download the software distribution.

3.2 Get license key

Contact your distributor or Nordic Messaging Technologies in order to get your evaluation license key or to purchase a permanent license.

3.3 Install software

Extract the components in any directory. This will create a subdirectory, change to that directory and execute the install script. The install script will ask a number of questions and allow for you to enter the license key.

# cd /tmp
# gzip -d emgsnmpagent11-7420-linux.tar.gz
# tar xvf emgsnmpagent11-7420-linux.tar
# cd emgsnmpagent.linux
# sh ./INSTALL

The EMG SNMP Agent has been designed to co-exist with the EMG server. By default it will install into /etc/emg/snmpd and the license will be placed in /etc/emg/license.snmpd.

After running the installation you should be able to execute "emgsnmpd -help" in order to display your license information.

3.4 Configure software

No additional configuration is needed if correct configuration information has been specified during installation.

3.5 Starting and stopping the agent

The agent can be started by simply running

# emgsnmpd

It is possible to set the debug level to DEBUG using the "-debug" option. When using the "-verbose" option, it will also send the debug output to stdout.

# emgsnmpd -debug

The agent can be stopped using

# emgsnmpd -stop
