Step 3 : Deploying Scurid Edge Agent on your IoT hardware

Agent is a single binary, which can be easily configured to run as a service, on desired platform. It is a fully self-contained binary requiring no additional elements.

If you are downloading the agent for the first time on linux or related platform you may need to make the binary executable using

Example :

sudo chmod +x scuridedgeagent-linux-arm7 

Execute the binary, ensure that the terminal is not closed if the agent is not configured to run as a service.

Example :

./scuridedgeagent-linux-xxx -spaaddr -syncrate 30s
