OpsCenter 4.0 User Guide

Manually deploying agents - rpm

You can install agents on Linux nodes using Yum packages.


  • Root or sudo access to the machines where the agents will be installed.
  • Your Cassandra or DataStax Enterprise cluster is up and running.
  • OpsCenter is installed and configured.
  • JMX connectivity is enabled on each node in the cluster.


In a terminal for both 32- and 64-bit systems:

  1. Add the DataStax Yum repository in the /etc/yum.repos.d/datastax.repo file.
    name = DataStax Repo for Apache Cassandra
    baseurl = http://rpm.datastax.com/community
    enabled = 1
    gpgcheck = 0
  2. Install the DataStax agent.
    $ yum install datastax-agent
  3. In address.yaml set stomp_interface to the IP address that OpsCenter is using. (You may have to create the file.)
    $ echo "stomp_interface: <reachable_opscenterd_ip>" | sudo tee -a /var/lib/datastax-agent/conf/address.yaml
  4. Start the DataStax agent.
    $ sudo service datastax-agent start
