Installation Requirements

Before you install Incorta, ensure your system meets the following requirements.

Operating System

Incorta Analytics 4.4 works on the following operating systems:

  • Mac OS
  • CentOS 7 and up (7.5 and up recommended)
  • Redhat 7 and up (7.5 and up recommended)
  • Amazon Linux 2
  • Oracle Linux 7.6
  • Windows (Windows Server 2012)

Requirements

Incorta Analytics 4.4 requires the following:

  • At least 16 GB of RAM. This number could increase depending on the amount of data.
  • A temporary directory (/tmp folder) with at least 2 GB of available space.
  • Fast storage disk (e.g. SSD).
  • NFS v3 or v4 shared storage disk, accessible by all the services within the same cluster (i.e. loader and analytic services). The shared disk will be used to store data files (if applicable), parquet files, and snapshot files used by the system. This is not required if you are installing Incorta on a single server (for example, on your laptop).
  • Java Development Kit (JDK) 8u144 or JDK 8u171 and up. Incorta does not support Java SDK 1.8.0.151 (8u151) through 1.8.0.171 (8u171). Install Java and set the Java home path. For more on how to install Java, see Install Java.
  • A database to connect to Incorta. See Database Requirements
  • For Windows installations, download and install Microsoft Visual C++ 2010 redistributable
  • For Windows installations, Windows Server 2012
  • Zookeeper 3.4.6, bundled with Incorta, but you can install it separately. For more information, see Set up a Zookeeper Cluster.
  • Spark 2.3.1, bundled with Incorta, but you can install it separately. For more information, see About Spark.
  • Python 2.7.5 or Python 3.6.5.
  • (Incorta Excel Add-in only) Microsoft Excel 2013
  • (Incorta Excel Add-in only) Microsoft Excel Plugin, Version 16.2

Database Requirements

Incorta Analytics requires one of the following RDBMS for metadata:

  • Derby (packaged for demos and not recommended for production environments)
  • MySQL (5.6)
  • Oracle 11g and 12c

When you install Incorta Analytics on an Oracle, or MySQL, database, the user needs to be granted certain privileges in order to complete the installation successfully. If these privileges are not granted, users can experience database authorization issues during the installation process. Refer to the following table for the minimum required privileges.

Oracle MySQL
CONNECT CONNECT
ALTER TABLE ALTER TABLE
CREATE TABLE CREATE TABLE
INSERT INSERT
CREATE INDEX CREATE INDEX
CREATE OR REPLACE SYNONYM DROP TABLE
CREATE OR REPLACE TRIGGER

Browser Requirements

You can use Incorta on the following browsers:

  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox

You can use the Incorta iOS Application with iOS Release 4.0.

Port Requirements

The following table is a list of the ports required by Incorta Analytics at startup. Using these ports will significantly help avoid startup issues. You set up some of these ports during the installation process. Others are fixed values and cannot be changed.

You can find the catalina.properties file and the server.xml file at the path: <INSTALLATION_PATH>/IncortaNode/services/<SERVICE_FOLDER>/conf/.

Other path names in the following table begin with <INSTALLATION_PATH>/IncortaNode/.

Port Number Access Type Purpose Install Parameter? Where to change it Notes
80 Incoming/ Outgoing HTTP traffic Apache Web Server (if installed) N Admin Task If installing Apache, ports 80 and 443 should be open by default.
2181 Internal Zookeeper N /zookeeper/conf/zoo.cfg DO NOT CHANGE. Internal coordinator of High Availability (HA). Incoming and outgoing traffic goes through this port. Change this port only if you understand how Zookeeper interacts with Incorta.
4040-4045 Incoming/Outgoing Job Detail Web ports N/A
4500 Internal Node Agent Port Y /nodeAgent/nodeAgent.cfg Installed on each node to connect that node to the CMC
5442 Internal SQL Interface (SQLi) port N TMT/Admin UI If the client (e.g., Tableau) exists on a remote server, this port must be open for remote access.
5436 Incoming/ Outgoing Incorta (memory) N TMT/Admin UI If the client (e.g., Tableau) exists on a remote server, this port must be open for remote access.
8005 Incoming/ Outgoing Tomcat shutdown port Y /services/ <SERVICE_FOLDER>/conf
8080 Incoming/ Outgoing Tomcat HTTP port Y server.xml
8443 Incoming/ Outgoing HTTPS traffic, Tomcat HTTPS for SSL Y server.xml
8009 Incoming/ Outgoing Tomcat AJP port Y server.xml
6060 Incoming/ Outgoing HTTP Port Y catalina.properties
6443 Incoming/ Outgoing HTTP/AJP redirect Port Y catalina.properties
6005 Incoming/ Outgoing Server Port Y catalina.properties
6009 Incoming/ Outgoing AJP Port Y catalina.properties
7077 Incoming/ Outgoing Spark Master Port N Spark configuration If Spark exists on a remote server, this port must be open for remote access.
7078 Incoming/ Outgoing Spark Worker Port N Spark configuration If Spark exists on a remote server, this port must be open for remote access.
7777 Incoming/ Outgoing Accessed locally by the Incorta Analytics Server Phantom JS N /start-exportserver.sh DO NOT CHANGE. This port is currently hard-coded in the server. Any changes will break the send-dashboard-by-email feature.
9091 Incoming/ Outgoing Spark Master Web UI Port N spark-env.sh For Spark master, this port must be open for remote access to monitor the Spark jobs and logs.
9092 Incoming/ Outgoing Spark Worker Web UI Port N spark-env.sh For Spark worker, this port must be open for remote access to monitor the Spark jobs and logs.
30000+ Incoming/Outgoing Job ports N/A Spark dynamically selects ports in the high range. See troubleshooting section for more information.

Additional Notes:

  • The Shutdown Port 8005 is the shutdown port for the Incorta Analytics Server, and it needs to be accessed by incoming and outgoing data. This port can be configured during the installation process, or changed in the catalina.properties file.
  • The HTTP Port 8080 can be configured during the installation process. If it is configured on the Incorta Analytics Server, then it should be made available at startup. You can change the value in the catalina.properties file.
  • The HTTPS Port 8443 can be configured during the installation process, or changed in the server.xml file.
  • The AJP Connector Port 8009 is the Apache Web Server port. It can be configured during the installation process, or changed in the server.xml file.

Troubleshooting: Installation

Issue: The CMC doesn’t open automatically after configuration.

Resolution: Check to ensure you have installed Java and identified the Java home path.
