Removing Server Monitoring from your Machine

If you no longer wish to monitor your server with us you can run through the following steps to fully remove our script from your machine. Note this will also mean that your Server Monitoring test will no longer receive updates, and subsequently any alerts if you have any issues with DISK, RAM or CPU usage.

Remove the StatusCake Server Agent

To do this you will need to remove the ‘cakeagent’ user which runs the cron, and also the .sh file to uninstall.

You can find the agent at:


Remove Automated Cron Job

To remove the automated task that was setup when you installed the Server Monitoring Agent, you will need to update your cron tasks on your machine.

Crontab can be viewed with:

crontab -e
