This section describes the information about DeviceOn on RISC platform.

Requirements for Build Environment

To cross-compile DeviceOn agent, you have to install dependencies into SDK toolchain.

Please refer to and for details. These two files are used on Yocto to generate suitable image & toolchain for DeviceOn.

For Debian/Ubuntu, you can refer to which we use to build rootfs for RK platform.

Build Instruction

Make sure you have set up SDK toolchain environment, before start building RMM EI agent.

For RK platforms, you have to set up chroot environment instead of SDK toolchain.

# Get source
git clone
cd RMM-EI-Agent

# Choose one for your platform
source risc-env fsl imx6 yocto 2.1
source risc-env fsl imx8 yocto
source risc-env qualcomm dragon yocto
source risc-env ti am335x yocto 2.4
source risc-env rk 3399 debian
source risc-env rk 3288 debian

# Build
make clean
cd build/Standard

After build process is complete, you can get the installer (.run) and tarball files in Wrapped/ folder.

$ ls Wrapped/
wise-agent-Poky_2.1.1 imx6-

In addition, you can check the output binaries in Release/AgentService/ folder as well.

Bundle Mechanism

To generate an eMMC hex binary which is a specific BSP official release with DeviceOn enabled, you can refer to the steps below.

DeviceOn Installation

1. Install RMM EI Agent

You can get the latest official release of RMM EI agent here.


During the installation, do not configure at this moment.

* Setup Agent [y/n](default:n): y
* Do you want to configure RMM Agent now? [y/n](default: y) n
* Do you want to start RMM Agent now? [y/n](default: y) n

2. Install CreateAccount

Get CreateAccount program and install with npm.

git clone
cd createaccount/
npm install

After installation, copy all files into /usr/local/AgentService/ folder except agent_config.xml.

rm agent_config.xml
cp -a * /usr/local/AgentService/

3. Set up Zero-Config service

[System V]

vi  zero-config
cp ./zero-config /etc/init.d
chown root:root /etc/init.d/zero-config
chmod 0750 /etc/init.d/zero-config
update-rc.d -f zero-config remove
update-rc.d zero-config defaults 99 20

The content of zero-config:


SERVICE_PROGRAM="node index.js"

# Source function library.
. /etc/init.d/functions 

case "$1" in
        echo -n "Starting CreateAccount: "
        cd $SERVICE_PATH
        $SERVICE_PROGRAM > /dev/null 2>&1
        if [ $RETVAL -eq 0 ]; then
            echo "OK"
            echo "Failure"
        echo "Usage: $0 {start}"
        exit 1

exit 0

[System D]

cp zero-config.service /etc/systemd/system
chown root:root /etc/systemd/system/zero-config.service
chmod 750 /etc/systemd/system/zero-config.service
systemctl enable zero-config.service

The content of zero-config.service:



ExecStartPre=/bin/sleep 10
ExecStart=/usr/bin/node /usr/local/AgentService/index.js



  • Check if OTA & HDD handlers are enabled
$ cd /usr/local/AgentService
$ vi module/module_config.xml
  • Install Service-SDK
cp -a ${S}/Core/src/.libs/* /usr/lib/
  • Install SUSI 4.0
cp -axr ${S}/Driver/ini/*.ini ${D}/usr/lib/Advantech/Susi/ini
cp -axr ${S}/Driver/lib*.* ${D}/usr/lib/
cp -axr ${S}/Susi4Demo/susidemo4 ${D}/usr/bin/

- OR -

cd SUSI4.x.x/Driver
sudo ./
  • Install SUSI-IoT
cp -ar ${S}/library/* /usr/lib/
cp -ar ${S}/library/modules/ /usr/lib/Advantech/iot/modules/
cp -ar ${S}/library/modules/ /usr/lib/Advantech/iot/modules/

- OR -

cd release/library
sudo ./

PS. Please make sure the owner of files above are 'root:root'.

  • After all, remove all installation files and clean history
rm /etc/boottimes 
rm /var/log/*
history -c
  • Finally, you can dump the eMMC hex binary.

PS. If the eMMC size is larger that 4GB, you may need to use exFat filesystem to store the dump binary.

First Boot

During the first boot procedure, the agent_config.xml will be updated by saagent service firstly. The MAC address is used as an unique device id for DeviceOn.


Then, zero-config service will register this account to the server. Once successful, the agent_config.xml will be updated again with corresponding credentials.


These procedures are automatically complete during first booting up. Users only need to power up device and connect with network.

Connect to Server

On PC or cellular phone, connect to DeviceQRCode website and input the MAC address of your target device.

If your target device has multiple Ethernet interfaces, use the following command to confirm the associated MAC.

$ cat /usr/local/AgentService/agent_config.xml | grep SN
