Monitoring Linux (CentOS) node using SAM

Hi All,

What's the best practice of monitoring the Linux VM (CentOS)?

Because the root account is created using different password in each of the Linux VM, and the security team dictates for the Principal of Least amount of Privilege when creating the service account.

This can be easily done in Windows, but not sure how to monitor or add Linux servers.

@neomatrix1217do I have to install the Solarwinds Linux agent to avoid creating Service account in each of the Linux system?


I assume, there is no need to use SAM Licensed Component Monitors license with the above approach.
