    $ unzip plumbr-agent-installer.zip
    $ cd plumbr-agent-installer
    $ sudo ./PlumbrAgentInstaller

    • PHP 5.4+ via any of
      • php-fpm
      • mod_php running in Apache 2.2+
    • Apache 2.2+

      • CPython 3.4+
      • PyPy 7.3+ (for Python 3)
      • uWSGI 2+ (using either of the above runtimes)

  3. STEP 3: Confirm Once you have installed the agent, you will see your services being monitored in real time at https://app.plumbr.io. It might take a minute or two for the first data to show up.
