Before installing a 2-tier distributed architecture, make sure you have:
- Reviewed Planning an FME Flow Installation.
- Provided the prerequisites in Before Installation.
- Linux: Ensured System Requirements are met, including updates and dependencies.
To perform a 2-tier installation of FME Flow:
- Obtain the Installer
- Install the FME Flow Database
- Install the FME Flow Core, FME Engines, and Web Application Server.
- Configure the FME Flow Database
- Start the FME Flow system services. Following a distributed installation, the FME Flow system services do not start automatically. You must manually start them on each machine that is hosting FME Flow components.
- Log on to the Web User Interface
- Request and Install a License
- (Recommended) Update the Windows service accounts that run the FME System Services.
- (Upgrade Only) Restore your FME Flow Configuration from a Previous Installation.
- Test the Installation.
Note Complete this step only if you wish to install a PostgreSQL database that is included with the FME Flow installer, and do not wish to configure the FME Flow Database on your own database server. For more information, see Provide a Database Server.
Note Complete this step only if you are configuring the FME Flow Database on your own database server, and did not install the PostgreSQL database that is included with the FME Flow installer. For more information, see Provide a Database Server.
Optimize: You can scale-up your FME Flow by:
- Increasing the number of FME Engines that run when you start FME Flow.
- Adding FME Engines on separate machines that are closer to your data.
