Proof-of-concept (POC) mode is StackState's installation mode best suited for POCs. It requires only one machine, and can handle (almost) the same load as a regular production setup. The only limitations are that the system cannnot handle lots of perpetual data (like >10 agents or a big perpetually running AWS landscape).
Before starting the installation, ensure your system meet StackState's POC setup installation requirements.
For a POC setup of StackState, simply follow the instructions for Installing StackState, using
POC as the SETUP configuration parameter.
