Zaphod Beeblebrox

"The president’s job - and if someone sufficiently vain and stupid is picked he won’t realise this - is not to wield power, but to draw attention away from it. Zaphod Beeblebrox, the only man in history to have made presidential telecasts from the bath, from Eccentrica Gallumbits bedroom, from the maximum-security wing of the Betelgeuse State Prison, or from where ever else he happened to be at the time, was supremely good at this job."

Sound familiar?

Installing a LogicMonitor collector on Centos 8

Struggling to install a LogicMonitor Collector on Centos 8?  I was too...

  • sudo su - # Become root – required by the bootstrap/installer
  • dnf -y install perl vim # Install perl and vim – BOTH are pre-requisites on Centos 8
  • ./LogicmonitorBootstrap64_100.bin # (Re)install the LM Collector
  • reboot # Reboot
