How do I install a new instance of Nodinite - Part 2?
Note: This is a continuation from Part 1
Next step configures the default behaviour for Nodinite. All these settings are System Parameters unique for each instance of Nodinite and can therefore easily be changed later.
Provide options that determine how large or how old Log Databases are allowed to grow.
Split options by size or time
- Size to split database on in (GB) - Default is 31 GB and modern SQL instances with great DISK IO can manage 50-100 GB
- Days to split database on - Default is 10000 days which means that the database will be split based on size
Provide options for how long time to store events and payload. This is the default setting applied on Message Types.
Options for how long time to keep events and payload
- The default number of days to keep logged events
- The default number of days to keep data/body logged events
Provide options for how long time to store monitoring events. This data can be seen in the graphs within Monitor Views.
- The number of days to keep Monitoring Events - Default is 32 but our recommendation is at least 90 days for production environments.
Provide options for integration with Active Directory:
Check to enable the use of Active Directory groups
- Enable role-based support for Active Directory Groups - Default = checked
Add what users should be Administrators
Review the configuration and click on the 'Next' button
If you are installing a new instance of Nodinite then a new Log Database will be created by the Logging Service on first start. This behaviour is by design to validate and test that the account for the Logging Service has sufficient rights to create new Log Databases.
Click on the 'Start' button to start the Logging Service
When and if the Logging Service starts information about the online Log Database will be presented. This is either a new one or your updated old existing one.
Basic information about online Log Database
Your next step is to start the Monitoring Service.
Click on the 'Start' button to start the Monitoring Service
