Installation is done in two parts: Netsil AOC and the Netsil Collectors.
The collectors are installed on your application instances (VMs or containerized environments) and mirror the service interactions & metrics back to Netsil AOC for real-time analysis.
You may install the collectors in a variety of environments, independent of the AOC environment. For instance, you may run the AOC as a standalone docker container, but install the collectors in Kubernetes.
NETSIL AOC Cluster Deployment
Get the Netsil AOC distributables from our download page.
Follow the instructions in the collectors section to install the collectors package on your cloud application instances.
You will need to provide a machine with sufficient resources to run Netsil AOC:
|vCPUs||8 (or more)|
|Memory||32 GiB (or more)|
|Disk||1 TB (or more)|

AOC Deployment Behind a Load Balancer
- If you wish, you may also open port
- If you are deploying Netsil AOC behind a load balancer, make sure to use layer 4 load balancing instead of layer 7 to properly proxy WebSocket connections.
- Please ensure that your Netsil AOC instance is reachable from the network where you are installing the collectors.
Netsil requires an open channel to a license site for verifying your license key.
Thus, ensure that you can reach
lm.netsil.com on port 443 from where you are running Netsil AOC.
