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: HTTPS, SSH, syslog (514 and 5514 for TCP and UDP), SNMP, DNS, NTP.

    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. After installing Unomaly, run this command to get the IP address of the Unomaly instance:

    sudo ifconfig eth0

    If you don’t automatically assign an IP address through DHCP, you need to use the console menu to set one manually. See “The Unomaly console menu”.

  7. (Recommended) Use a supported browser to navigate to the IP address (from Step 6) to open the web interface and finalize the install using the configuration wizard.

You can also use the Unomaly console menu to configure the instance from a command prompt. See “Configure the Unomaly instance”.

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”.
