    To proceed, click Next.

  6. Enter the administrator credentials. To log in to Performance Monitoring Toolset, specify a user name and a password.

  7. Configure the Datastore. If you do not have Datastore installed, you can install it with the specified host and port number.

    If you have Datastore installed, enter the remote host name and the port number and the cluster where the Datastore resides.

    To proceed, click Next.

  • The maximum count of open files must be more than 65536. Use the command, ulimit -n 65536.
  • The maximum count of maps must be more than 262144. To increase the limit, use the command, sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=262144.
  • A non-root user must exist.
  1. To launch the installer, enter the command, ./ColdFusion_2021_PerformanceMonitoringToolset_WWEJ_linux64.bin

  2. After the installation, the installer starts both Datastore and Performance Monitoring Toolset processes.

  3. To access the Datastore, navigate to URL http://<PMT-Host>:<port> after installation.

  4. You can configure init scripts by running sudo <PMTLocation>/bin/ install.


For Mac OS, the steps are identical to Windows.
