Installing NuoDB on Linux

Customers can download NuoDB using their login credentials from the password protected NuoDB Support Portal. If you are a customer and do not have your NuoDB download login credentials, please contact NuoDB Support.

To enable Enterprise License functionality (which supports an unlimited number of hosts, TE, and SM database processes), installation of a NuoDB Enterprise License file is required. For more information, see Obtain and Install a Product License, or contact NuoDB Support.

You must have Java JDK or JRE installed. For information on supported Java versions, see System Requirements.

The NuoDB database is installed on Linux using the NuoDB-provided RPM package or TAR file.

  • Only one NuoDB RPM package can be installed on a host machine at a time. Multiple TAR files can be installed simultaneously.

  • Before running NuoDB, disable the THP on host machine’s kernel to prevent inefficient memory management. To manually disable THP, see Disabling Transparent HugePage (THP).

    For RHEL 8 or later, it is not required to disable the host machine’s kernel THP settings when running NuoDB. NuoDB will disable THP for NuoDB database processes if THP is configured to always at the OS level.
