Installing IBM TM1 Server on UNIX or Linux
You can install the TM1® Server components on a 64-bit computer that is running either a UNIX or Linux® operating system. Use this type of installation to install and run the TM1 Server on a dedicated computer that remote users can access.
As of IBM® Planning
Analytics version 2.0.2, IBM
TM1 Server uses
nunmap() for large block allocation on Linux. Therefore, you must be aware of the
vm.max_map_count limit. By default
on Linux, the
vm.max_map_count is 65530 and
this count is insufficient when large data models are used.
When the limit of 65530 is reached, you might receive an error message that TM1 Server is unable to allocate memory for a large block or a memory leak might occur.
To update the
vm.max_map_count, run the following command as root:
sysctl -w vm.max_map_count=655300
To set this value permanently, update the
vm.max_map_count setting in your
To verify the setting, after you restart your TM1 Server, run the following command:
Managing components after installation
After you install, you can use the start and stop scripts that are provided with the installation to manage your TM1 Server. You can also use IBM Cognos® Configuration to manage the servers you want to run in some cases.
Accessing and viewing data
To view and interact with the data that is stored in a TM1 Server on UNIX or Linux, use one of the TM1 clients on a computer that is running Microsoft Windows.
