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 Edition functionality (which supports an unlimited number of hosts, TE, and SM database processes), you must apply a NuoDB Enterprise License file. For more information, see Obtaining and Installing an Enterprise Edition 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 NuoDB 5.0.1 or later and 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.
