Install Raptor in the Recommended Normal Setup

The recommended, normal, setup of Raptor involves the Raptor ICA being installed on each server you wish to monitor, and the Raptor Server components (the MUA and the Web interface) being installed together on a separate server.

1. Installing

1.1 Installing the Server Components

The first step is to install both the MUA and Web packages on a single server as a single package. Instructions are available for doing this on Linux or on Windows.

1.2 Installing the ICA

The next step is to install the ICA package on each service you wish to monitor. Instructions are also available for doing this on Linux or on Windows.

2. Configuring

2.1 Configuration components to communiciate

2.1.1 The ICA and the MUA

Now that you have the server components (MUA/Web) installed on one server, and the ICA on another, they must be configured to communicate with each other. To do this, follow these instructions - Configure the ICA and MUA to communicate.

2.1.2 The MUA and the Web Interface

As you are using the combined -server package, this has already been done automatically.

2.2 Configuring each component

2.2.1 The ICA

Follow these instructions - Configure the ICA.

2.2.2 The MUA

Follow these instructions - Configure the MUA.

2.2.3 The Web Interface

Follow these instructions - Configure Web.

3. Start the ICA daemon/service

Now that the ICA is installed and configured, it is ready to start. This will usually involve the following:

  • On Linux (as root):
    service raptor-ica start
  • On Windows
    • Open the Services window and start the Raptor-ICA service.

4. Enjoy!
