Follow these instructions to install on a Google Cloud Platform instance. Refer to the Installation overview for minimum installation requirements.

Installation instructions

  1. Download the latest version of Unomaly:

    The install file for GCP is an upgrade run-file, not an ISO-image file.

  2. Provision a Debian 8 (Jessie) instance using the gcloud command.

    gcloud compute instances create instance_name \
         --image-project=debian-cloud \
         --image=debian-8-jessie-v20180611 \
         --boot-disk-size=200G \ 
  3. Make sure the correct firewall rules are applied to the instance:

    Type Protocol/Port
    HTTPS TCP/443
    SSH TCP/22
    Syslog TCP/514, UDP 5514
    SNMP UDP/162
    DNS UDP/53
    NTP UDP/123

    See “Edit network and communication settings” for the specific ports.

  4. Upload the Unomaly run-file to your provisioned instance.

    gcloud compute scp instance_name:~/
  5. Log in to the instance and execute the run-file:

    sudo sh <unomaly_install_file>.run
  6. (Recommended) Use a supported browser to navigate to the IP address (from the GCP console) to open the web interface and finalize the install using the configuration wizard.

Configure email notification

We recommend that you configure the Unomaly instance to send email notifications when there are issues with the deployment or for alerts on monitored systems. You can configure SMTP and email settings in the Unomaly interface’s Settings > Email. See “Configure email settings”.
