You will receive a tla identifying your account, a bootstrap token. You will need those to bootstrap your dataplane environment so that it can be managed by Lightup.

Create a VM

Create a virtual machine (VM) in your cloud environment or on-premise virtual compute environment with the following specifications:
  • CPU and memory dimensioning similar to AWS EC2 t3.2xlarge (8 vCPUs, 32GB memory)
  • Persistent hard disk capacity (EBS or similar) of 200GB of more
  • Ubuntu 20.04 or RHEL8 or RHEL7
Make sure the VM is set up in the right VPC or cloud service provider account so that it has access to the data warehouses that need to be monitored.
Make sure the VM is set up for SSH access and you have the private key that gives you access to the VM.
Before proceeding, make sure you have the following:
  • IP address or host name of your VM
  • The private key that gives you SSH access to the VM

Bootstrap the Lightup data plane

SSH into the VM. Make sure curl is installed. Then, run the following command with the tla and token values you received in email:
curl -H 'Cache-Control: no-cache' -L | LIGHTUP_TLA=<tla> LIGHTUP_TOKEN=<token> bash -s install
Wait for about 10 minutes after the previous step. Then, go to https://app.<tla> and verify that the Lightup login page shows up.
Log in to the Lightup system to get started.
