|Title||New agent rule for Checkmk agent service on Linux|
|Checkmk Edition||Checkmk Enterprise Edition (CEE)|
|Compatibility||Compatible - no manual interaction needed|
It is now possible to choose which, if any, network service should be shipped and installed with a baked Linux Checkmk agent package.
This can be configured with the new agent ruleset "Checkmk agent network service (Linux)"
It is possible to choose between the following services/super servers setups:
If no rule is configured, the behavior will be identical to the first of the mentioned choices (prefer xinetd, fallback to systemd).
If the super server(s) of your choice is/are not available at the target system, you will be noticed about this on agent installation.
The last option (no service) is a reasonable choice if you want to monitor the hosts without the use of a super server, e.g. via SSH.
