How to Monitor Proxmox Cluster Using eG Enterprise?

eG Enterprise monitors a Proxmox Cluster in an agent-based or an agentless manner. In case of the agentless approach, a remote agent used to monitor the Proxmox Cluster should be deployed on a remote Windows host in the environment.

Regardless of the monitoring approach (agent-based or agentless), the eG agent connects to the Proxmox Cluster and runs pvesh commands to pull the metrics of interest. To enable this connection, the eG install user should be vested with PVEAuditor role who has read only access privilege on the Proxmox Cluster. Once the pre-requisite is ensured, add a Proxmox Cluster component for monitoring. The steps for adding the target component are discussed in Adding a Proxmox Cluster Component.
