The Linux/SSH APT Update Event Monitor runs "apt-get update" on your Linux devices and alerts if there are updates available. It can help you stay on top of pending updates and required reboots. You can even configure the event monitor to automatically apply updates it detects.
To begin, choose the level of alert you want to receive if the SSH server is unreachable.
Use the next option to receive alerts if updates are available.
If updates have been installed since the last time the event monitor ran, you can choose to receive an alert to notify you of the applied updates.
The next option will notify you if any of the applied updates require reboots.
Check the box next to the following option to automatically apply available updates.
Check the final box to receive a list of pending updates in the event text generated each time the event monitor runs.
Enter the port number and timeout you want to use here.
