SSH Settings

Registering the system (applicable for Linux based systems)

If you want to monitor system related metrics like CPU consumption, Memory Usage, etc. Monyog will create another SSH connection.

Please refer to  System privileges for further details of privileges needed for this feature.

If have configured SSH tunneling to MySQL for this registration you can use those same details here too, provided that SSH tunnel user has enough privileges. To do this you should check the "Use same as tunnel details" checkbox.

Using SSH connections

To create a SSH connection you will be asked for:

  • SSH Host: Host of the machine on which SSH server is running.
  • SSH Port: Port on which SSH server is listening. By default, it is 22.
  • SSH Username: Username to access the SSH server (Note: not the MySQL server).
  • Authentication type: Specify the type of authentication to use. This can be either key based or password based.
  1. If you have specified Authentication type as Password - Provide the password.
  2. If you have specified, Authentication type as Key - You should note that Monyog only supports ''OpenSSH standard key format'' for key based authentication in SSH connections.
  • Private Key: Paste the content of your private key file. Again, don’t specify the path to your private key file.
  • Passphrase: Enter the passphrase for your private key file (if any). This can be left blank, if no passphrase was given for the private key.
