    can RSP probe communicate with Linux/Unix machine with Sudo user to collect performance data? 

     

    Following instructions are not clear. Will Linux administrator create rspuser in Linux machine and give him admin right?

     

     

    Use Sudo: allows you to work with root user privileges on UNIX based computers.

    Note: To allow the rsp user to use “sudo” feature, change the following in sudo /etc/sudoers file.
    1. Type visudo on the remote machine, and disable requiretty option for the user. 
      The default value is rspuser !requiretty, where rspuser is the username that the probe uses when the Use Sudo option is selected. 
    2. Enable no password for the user by running the following command:
      ::rspuser ALL=(ALL) NOPASSWD:ALL

    The RSP probe will be monitoring CPU memory processes etc on the box.

    Dev only tests with SUDO ALL permissions set.

    It is possible to set less but you will need to work that out as to exactly what you want to monitor

    which commands will be used so you can provide specific rights as needed.

     

    You can review the KB to see the command used if you would like to limit it more.

     

    However support will not have any further details than what is in the documentation.

     

    Hope this helps
