Installation and Execution

The Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool is available to install in the Denodo Solution Manager installer and in the Denodo Platform installer.

The Solution Manager Installation Guide provides all the information required to install the Solution Manager and its components. The Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool is a mandatory component of the Solution Manager; therefore, it will always be installed with the Solution Manager.

In a Denodo Platform installation, however, the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool is an optional component of the Virtual DataPort module. Select it during the installation and it will be available in your Denodo Platform. There is more information on installing the Denodo Platform in the Denodo Platform Installation Guide.

Even though the product is the same on both installations, the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool that comes with the Solution Manager has an advantage. The list of environments, clusters and servers defined in the Solution Manager will be present in the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool. There is no need to manually recreate them. In addition, you can control which environments will be available for every user to monitor.

That is not the case for the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool in the Denodo Platform. There are no environments and servers shared among users. Every user will need to define her own environments and servers.

Note

We do not recommend installing the Diagnostic & Monitoring Tool in a Denodo Platform of your production environment. It needs to execute complex queries to analyze the log files, which may affect the performance of the Denodo servers running on the same machine. Using a dedicated machine or the development or the staging environments is a better solution.

Besides, when monitoring, remember to use a different machine from the monitored server to not affect the results.
