Setting Up Your Metric Insights Server

1. Verify System Requirements

Metric Insights must be installed on a hardware platform that has a fast file system and has sufficient memory, cores, and storage to run your application.  See system requirements for a Metric Insights server for a detailed list of requirements.

2. Install Metric Insights

Metric Insights can be installed as:

  • A single-server (non-orchestrated) Docker application
  • An orchestrated Docker application

Follow the instructions below to install the software:

  1. Single Server Docker Deployment (Simple Install)
  2. Orchestrated Deployment:
    1. Kubernetes
    2. Amazon ECS
    3. Docker Swarm
    4. OpenShift

3. Verify Application Login

Verify Application Login

Once you have completed your application installation:

  1. Point your browser to the CNAME that you have created for your server (for example, insight.yourcompany.com). The system will automatically re-direct you to the login page.   If you do not have a CNAME setup, you can use the IP address for the server.
  2. Login using the temporary admin password that Metric Insights has provided you.
