Install NTA and Remote NTA Flow Storage Database

Table of contents

Updated March 11th, 2016

Overview

This article provides steps on how to install NTA and Remote NTA Flow Storage Database.

Environment

NTA version 4.1.x

Steps

NTA allows you to install the database for storing your flows on any computer within your network.

  • NOTE: Installing NTA Flow Storage Database on a polling engine (main or additional) server is not recommended. If the server resources are shared by the database and NTA/NPM, the potential performance improvement is not so significant as it could be if the database were on a separate server.

 

To install NTA using a remote NTA Flow Storage Database:

  1. Log on to your NTA Flow Storage Database server, install and configure the remote NTA Flow Storage Database. For more details, see Installing NTA Flow Storage Database.
  • NOTE: Make sure you have NPM installed on the server where you want to install NTA. You need the credentials for accessing the Orion SQL database used by NPM to configure the NTA Flow Storage Database.
  1. Log on to the NPM server and install NTA only. 
  2. Start the NTA Setup Wizard, select the installation option NPM/NTA and NTA Flow Storage Database on two separate servers, and enter the NTA Flow Storage Database Server hostname or IP address. For more details, see NTA Installation.
  3. Select one of the available licensing options. For more details, see Activate Licenses.
  4. Proceed to add your NetFlow devices and interfaces to Network Performance Monitor.

 

For more information about adding NetFlow devices, see Setting Up Network Devices to Export NetFlow Data and Adding Flow‑Enabled Devices and Interfaces to the Orion Database.
