You should verify that all requirements have been met before you begin installing DTP, migrating from Concerto (4.x) to DTP, or upgrading to a new version of DTP.
In this section:
64-bit versions are required for all platforms. DTP requires 64-bit Java Runtime Environment.
The following versions are supported:
Microsoft .NET Framework 4.0 is required.
You can install DTP on Linux distributions that support 64-bit Java Runtime Environments (e.g., Ubuntu 14.04, 14.10, or RHEL Server 6.x).
A dedicated non-root user account is recommended for installing and managing DTP on Linux. A non-root user account is required for installing and managing DTP distributions that include an embedded database server.
DTP supports MySQL and Oracle databases:
MySQL 5.6.25 to 8.0.x. is supported. See the following section for important information.
Oracle 11g or Oracle 12c. The Oracle database should not be installed on the same machine as DTP.
If you are installing DTP on a virtual machine (VM), make sure to allocate enough resources. Running DTP on a physical machine may result in greater performance.
An additional 4 GB of RAM is recommended if you are installing DTP Enterprise Pack.
Before you begin installation, you should verify that the necessary ports are available:
|80 (Windows), 8080 (Linux)||DTP Server|
|8443 (Windows and Linux)||SSL Connector|
8005, 8009 (Linux)
|Apache Tomcat ports|
|8082||Data Collector for Parasoft analysis engines and third-party integrations.|
|8787||Used by the embedded database server shipped with distribution; this port is non-configurable.|
|3306||Default port used for sending and retrieving MySQL data.|
|1521||Default port used for sending and retrieving Oracle data.|
|61617||JMS events broker|
|1883||MQTT transport connector|
You can customize the DTP Server ports as necessary. See Reconfiguring DTP Ports.
The following ports must be available if you are installing DTP Enterprise Pack:
|8315||Event broker in the parent process that orchestrates all of the other processes associated with Enterprise Pack.|
|8314||Extension Designer web interface|
|8320-8399||DTP Enterprise Pack services.|
|8000||Policy Center web interface.|
|8316||Embedded MongoDB database for DTP Enterprise Pack.|
The latest version of the following browsers are supported:
Linux imposes a limit on the number of open file descriptors per process, which affects the number of allowable concurrent open connections that DTP can safely support. If many concurrent users will interact with DTP components, such as Report Center Dashboard or REST APIs, you should increase the open file descriptor limit before starting DTP.
Parasoft recommends setting the limit to approximately 100 times the number of concurrent users logged in. For example, if you expect 100 concurrent users, an open file descriptor limit of 10,000 should be sufficient.
Server behavior is inconsistent across operating systems, so you should use discretion when determining the proper limit for your environment. Methods for increasing the limit vary widely for different distributions. Consult your operating system documentation to determine whether it is possible to increase the limit and how to do so.
The installation machine must have a program installed that can unzip compressed folders and files.
