How to run agent

HTTP interface

If the agent is running as a service or a daemon, its web interface should be accessible at http://hostname:62354.

If the machine connecting to this interface is trusted (see httpd-trust configuration directective in agent configuration), a link will be available to force immediate execution.

Command line

Agent can also be executed from command line, using either of its multiple executables (see agent man pages for details).


Open a command interpreter windows (cmd.exe), with administrator privileges (right clicRun as Administrator on Vista and Seven Start menu).

Go in the c:\Program files\FusionInventory-Agent\perl\bin (adjust this path depending on your configuration) directory and run:

# perl fusioninventory-agent


Ensure daemon key is not defined or false in agent.cfg. This key is enabled on OS X default settings (/opt/fusioninventory-agent/agent.cfg).

Go in /opt/fusioninventory-agent and run the following command:

$ sudo /opt/fusioninventory-agent/fusioninventory-agent

See OS X documentation for further details.


Just run:

# fusioninventory-agent
