      I have the same issue in CentOS 7.
      I believe cannot be installed on CentOS 7 this way.

        Sorry for the trouble, we’ve updated the article with new instructions to new install latest NodeJS so that the will install smoothly without any errors. Please check and update us..

    • Zoltan says:

      The installation steps won’t work on CentOS 7, because it is try to use a really old version on NodeJS.
      To do it properly (to install NodeJS v 5.x):

      $ sudo curl -sL | sudo bash –
      $ sudo yum install -y nodejs
      $ sudo npm install -g –user “root”

      • Ravi Saive says:


        Thanks a ton for providing the latest instructions about installing most recent version of NodeJS, as per your suggestion we’ve included the instructions to install latest NodeJS..

    Thanks for the new tool as this is the first time I hear about it. In my company we use only the software Anturis to do all kinds of monitoring – the whole IT infrastructure of the company. It is working perfectly right now, but who knows in the future?
