Install with POC configuration

StackState prefers Kubernetes! In the future we will move away from Linux support. Read about installing StackState on Kubernetes.

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.

Installing StackState in a POC configuration

NOTE: This installation configuration is only available since StackState 4.0.0.

For a POC setup of StackState, simply follow the instructions for Installing StackState, using POC as the SETUP configuration parameter.

Starting and Stopping

SystemD service

The RPM and DEB packages install SystemD services for StackState and StackGraph. StackState can be started with sudo systemctl start stackstate.service this will also start service StackGraph. Starting StackState can take some time.

After starting processes are complete, the service is available at http://<stackstate_hostname>:7070.

Stopping StackState

StackState can be stopped by sudo systemctl stop stackstate.service. StackGraph is not automatically stopped when stopping StackState, StackGraph can be stopped by sudo systemctl stop stackgraph.service.

StackState Status

Checking the service status can be done with sudo systemctl status stackstate.service and sudo systemctl status stackgraph.service.
