Overview – Shop & Install
Shop & Install
Shop & Install is mainly used to download and install a given Application and Version. Data definitions on Applications, their metrics structure, and their install files are maintained in NonStop Studio (on Remote Analyst). It gives users the ability to create YAML like metric definitions for one or more Applications. As Applications are updated and new versions are available, new, and different metrics definitions may be defined for each version. My NonStop users do not require a Remote Analyst license to access the definitions on its Studio. There are two simple steps:
- Shop: Within the Studio tab, click on the icon on the upper right side of screen. This will list all available Applications and Versions published by ‘Producers’ (term used in Remote Analyst) on NonStop Studio. Publication Date/Time of each Application.Version is noted. This is the Date/Time the Producer made this definition available to its user community.
- Install: There are 3 Installation options available for the users to choose from.
This will download an Application.Version from NonStop Studio and prompts for the Installation Process.
This allows for installing an Application.Version who’s Install PAK file is already present on your NonStop server. Choose the location of the Install PAK file present on your NonStop server using the dropdown lists available, \Server.$Volume.Subvol.Filename. Post selections, click on Install button goes through the Installation Process.
This allows users to upload an Application.Version’s Install PAK file from their PC. After upload, click on the Install button goes through the Installation Process.
The process starts with prompting you to enter the installation locations on both Guardian and OSS space. Upon successful transfer & unpak of the installation package, it prompts for a series of Startup & configuration parameters. After which, WVP E automatically knows definitions for which Application.version is installed on your NonStop Server (noted on the list box on the upper left). Installation Date/time for installed definitions is noted.
