Inspeqtor requires a 64-bit install of Linux 3.0+. Inspeqtor binaries are available via the release page.

Inspeqtor runs as root:adm. Add your user to the adm group and you won't need to use sudo to communicate with Inspeqtor:

sudo usermod -a -G adm $USER

Control

To start or stop Inspeqtor:

Upstart-based systems

initctl start inspeqtor
initctl stop inspeqtor
initctl restart inspeqtor

Inspeqtor logs to stdout. It's up to the operating system and init system to send that output somewhere. In Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, Inspeqtor's log output goes to /var/log/upstart/inspeqtor.log.

Systemd-based systems

systemctl start inspeqtor
systemctl stop inspeqtor
systemctl restart inspeqtor

Inspeqtor logs to syslog. It's up to the operating system and init system to send that output somewhere. In CentOS 7, Inspeqtor's syslog output goes to /var/log/messages.

Customize

Once installed, you'll now need to customize Inspeqtor:

  1. Update Inspeqtor's /etc/inspeqtor/inspeqtor.conf config file so it can send you alerts.
  2. Add *.inq files in /etc/inspeqtor/services.d to monitor your services.
