We wanted our Server Monitor Agent to be as light as as possible, with a very tiny footprint on the server resource usage.

It is fully coded in bash language, and it requires no additional software to be installed for it to function.

The following operating systems are compatible and can run the HetrixTools Server Monitor agents.


The Shell HetrixTools Server Monitoring Agent is compatible with:

  • CentOS 6 or newer
  • CloudLinux 6 or newer (but the agent needs to run as root, read more here)
  • Ubuntu 14.04 or newer
  • Debian 8 or newer
  • Fedora 24 or newer
  • Arch Linux


The PHP HetrixTools Server Monitoring Agent can be run on:

  • Any PHP (even shared hosting) environment that is ran on top of a Linux operating system


The Windows HetrixTools Server Monitoring Agent is compatible with:

  • Windows 7 or newer
  • Windows Server 2008 or newer


If you encounter any issues during agent installation, be sure to open a support ticket on our website, so we can assist you with it.
