How to Install the On premise agent (Ship)

The following article explains in detail how to install BlazeMeter's on premise agent on the server/instance which is behind your firewall.

First, make sure your server/instance meets the minimal requirements according to this article.
Our agents only support the following Linux distributions:

  • CentOS 7.0/7.1/7.2/7.3 
  • RHEL 7.0/7.1/7.2/7.3
  • Ubuntu 12.04/14.04
  1. Download the installation script via the BlazeMeter UI - Log into your BlazeMeter account, go to Private Locations section and right click on the 'Agent Installation Script' Install Script link and 'Copy Link Address'.                                                                                                                                          Screen_Shot_2017-05-21_at_16.19.23.png
  2. Get your API Key Id and API Key Secret, available in the API Keys section of your 'Settings'.
  3. Go to your dedicated ship server and write: curl <past link here> -u 'id:secret' | bash

    *Please Notice that the 'id:secret' parameters need to be populated with your API key and Secret API key. See this article for detailed information on API keys.

    $ curl -u 'f819e92b1626a148759f75fa:62dd20b144dd3a928b3d0f0a414462b2f204459e1792358465a677a767bb8dc67ec4def2' | bash
  4. Wait 5 minutes and then you'll see the installed ship inside your OPL.

That's it! Your Ship is installed and you'll now be able to see it in your Harbors section.
