InfiMONITOR can be installed both on the hardware and virtual platform (VMware ESXi, Microsoft Hyper-V, Citrix XenServer are supported) from ISO image.
"PCnet-FAST III (Am79C970)", "PCNet PCI II (Am79C970A)" cards are not supported in VMware.
InfiMONITOR offers web-server functionality, it does not require an underlying Operating Sytem (Windows, Linux, etc.) as prerequisite.
Below are the recommended system requirements for the platform depending on the devices number to monitor by the InfiMONITOR:
|Devices||Up to 200||Up to 2 000||Up to 10 000|
|CPU||Intel Core i3 3 GHz, 2 cores level||Intel Core i7 3 GHz, 8 cores level||Intel Xeon 2.0 GHz, 16 cores level|
|RAM||from 4 Gb||from 16 Gb||from 32 Gb|
|HDD||from 200 Gb||from 1 TB||from 10 TB|
|Additional||Hardware controller in RAID 10 level|
When an operator opens an InfiMONITOR web page in his web browser at client computer, the web page requires some place in RAM to operate smoothly. This is the reason for hardware requirements for client computer, regardless of an operating system installed on client computer.
Mandatory requirement to CPU it must be x64 architecture.
In order to install InfiMONITOR on the virtual platform server's CPU must support hardware virtualization enabled in the BIOS.
The following will be required for the InfiMONITOR deployment:
- Platform for the deployment: the dedicated server or virtual machine conforming to the system requirements
- The ISO image with the latest InfiMONITOR software version from the official InfiNet Wireless FTP server - https://ftp.infinet.ru/pub/INMS/. For the installation to the dedicated server it is required to record the image to a CD or USB flash-drive.
Step 1 - Download
- In case the InfiMONITOR installs to the virtual machine: connect the ISO image with the installation program to it, in the virtual machine BIOS specify to boot from CD-ROM
- In case the InfiMONITOR installs to the dedicated server: insert the compact disk or USB flash-drive with the previously recorded installation program. In the BIOS specify to boot from install device.
Step 2 - The installation program launch
Start the server or virtual machine. In BIOS specify to boot from: CD-ROM or USB flash-drive.
After boot loader start the following menu will appear on the screen, select "Install InfiMONITOR"
Step 3 - The installation program
After several seconds the InfiMONITOR installation starts, thus the corresponding prompt message will appear.
Click the "Ok" button.
Select timezone from the available list and click "Ok"
Specify a NTP server and click "Ok".
Select hard disk and click "Ok".
At this stage the installation program will find out all supported network adapters and prompts to select the one to use for InfiMONITOR.
Select the desired adapter and click the "Enter" button.
After the network adapter selection the network IP address for InfiMONITOR should be set. Specify the IP-address selected for the the monitoring system and click the "Enter" button.
Set the network mask, click the "Enter" button
Set default gateway IP-address, click the "Enter" button
Set the DNS server IP-address, click the "Enter" button
Now, after finish with the network configuration, the installation program will notify about the installation readinesss of InfiMONITOR.
The installation program will delete all the data on server or virtual machine hard disk. Please, make sure that the disk has no useful information, after the installation start, its recovery wil be impossible.
If you want to proceed with InfiMONITOR installation, click the "Continue" button.
The installation procedure can take several minutes. After succeful install the installation program will notify that InfiMONITOR has been installed and ready to start. Click the "Reboot" button.
Step 4 - The InfiMONITOR first start
After installation has been finished, the system will reboot. Make sure the server or the virtual machine has BIOS boot settings set to hard disk now.
The startup may take about 1-2 minutes, after which you will be prompted to enter the service mode.
The InfiMONITOR first start - is an important stage for various procedures which could not be performed at the installation stage. Therefore, right after the prompt appearance access to the monitoring system can be impeded for about 1-2 minutes.
