RTM stands for Real Time Monitoring, it enables you to monitor your server to see core information from the server itself. The information mostly consist of uptime, CPU usage, RAM usage, SWAP usage and hardware specification. Normally the RTM will be installed with the server already. If you install your own custom ISO image, then you would need to manually install RTM to the OS. For Linux based OS, you can install the RTM with the following command:

wget ftp://ftp.ovh.net/made-in-ovh/rtm/install_rtm-0.9.4-3.sh

Once we have the RTM script downloaded, we need to enable the script to be executable, we will use the command of:

chmod 744 install_rtm-0.9.4-3.sh

To run the script we will use the command below.


This will run the script and the information will be displayed in the control interface next to the server.
