Chapter 2. Installing and Starting the VoltDB Enterprise Manager

The VoltDB Enterprise Manager simplifies the process of managing VoltDB database clusters. However, you must first make sure the management server and database servers that will be managed are set up properly to allow the Enterprise Manager to do its work. This chapter explains how to set up and start the Enterprise Manager, including:

2.1. Operating System and Software Requirements

The requirements for managing a database cluster are identical to the requirements for running a VoltDB database (see the Using VoltDB manual for details), with the addition that each node must be running SSH for communication with the management server. Table 2.1, “Operating System and Software Requirements: Database Cluster Nodes” summarizes these requirements.

Operating System
  • CentOS version 6.3 or later

  • Red Hat (RHEL) version 6.3 or later

  • Ubuntu 10.04, 12.04, and 14.04

CPU
  • Dual core x86_64 processor

  • 64 bit

  • 1.6 GHz

The server running the VoltDB Enterprise Manager itself does not have the same strict requirements for memory and performance, but is assumed to be running Linux and SSH. Table 2.2, “Operating System and Software Requirements: Management Tool Host” summarizes these requirements.
