Enabling NuoDB Insights and Acquiring Your Subscriber ID (Physical/VM Deployments)

After you install NuoDB in a physical or virtual machine deployment, you can enable NuoDB Insights.

To enable NuoDB Insights, do the following:

  1. Run the enable_insights.sh command.
    After running the enable command, a message displays notifying you that you are about to enable the NuoDB Insights plugin.
  2. When prompted, enter Y to opt into NuoDB Insights.
    After you enter Y, a hosted Insights service generates your unique Insights Subscriber ID.

Note: The enable_insights.sh command needs to be run only from one node in each NuoDB domain.

Note: Whether NuoDB was installed using a tarball installation or a package (RPM) installation, the enable_insights.sh command must be run as the user (usually root) that installed NuoDB.

NuoDB Insights then begins capturing and presenting database and system metrics that are then available to you when accessing Insights with your unique Subscriber ID and Dashboard URL.
