LOGalyze is installed along the following major steps:

  • Preparing installation, checking system requirements
  • Installing Java VM
  • Installing LOGalyze Engine and LOGalyze Admin in one step
  • Changing configuration settings after installation

The detailed procedure of installation is given in the next chapters.

3.1 Preparing installation

Before running the installer be sure to carry out the steps described in the next chapters.

3.1.1 Checking system requirements

In order to run LOGalyze, the preconditions detailed in chapter System Requirements are necessary. Lacking these, or in case of using a different version the reliable operation of the software is not guaranteed.

3.2 Installing Java VM

Install the appropriate Java VM package. Detailed installation description is given in the document found in the Java package. In order to run LOGalyze a functioning Java VM is essential.

  • Download Java SE 8 from
  • Install the JRE or Server JRE or JDK (for vm utils) according to the instructions included with the release. You can find the detailed installation instructions in the documentation of the Java package.
  • Set an environment variable JAVA_HOME to the pathname of the directory into which you installed the SDK release.

3.3 Installing LOGalyze

3.3.1 Installing LOGalyze

  • Download a binary distribution of LOGalyze engine from
    On windows platform, you will need
    On Unix platform, you will need logalyze-tomcat6-4.1.x-bin.tar.gz.
  • Unpack the binary distribution into a temporary location. Move it to a convenient location so that the distribution resides in its own directory (conventionally named "logalyze"). For the purposes of the remainder of this document, the symbolic name "${logalyze_home}" is used to refer to the full pathname of the release directory.
    • Preferred location on Unix platform is /opt/logalyze
    • You can use the command below
      tar xzvf logalyze-tomcat6-4.1.x-bin.tar.gz -C /opt/
  • Before version 4.1.4: Go to ${logalyze_home}/conf/ and rename all of the files with extension .sample by removing the .sample extension. Sample command:
cd /opt/logalyze/conf
rename 's/\.sample$//' \*.sample
  • Edit ${LOGALYZE_HOME}/bin/ to set JAVA_HOME.

3.3.2 Starting up LOGalyze Engine

You can start LOGalyze Engine with the ${LOGALYZE_HOME}/bin/ script on Linux, or startup.bat on Windows.

3.3.3 Shutting down LOGalyze Engine

You can stop the running LOGalyze Engine with ${LOGALYZE_HOME}/bin/ script on Linux, or shutdown.bat on Windows.

3.3.4 Starting up LOGalyze Admin

You can start LOGalyze Admin with the ${LOGALYZE_HOME}/admin/bin/ script on Linux, or startup.bat on Windows.

Note if you are on Windows and CATALINA_HOME environment variable is missing, you should enter the directory %LOGALYZE_HOME%\admin first, and run the bin\startup.bat script.

3.3.5 Shutting down LOGalyze Admin

You can stop the running LOGalyze Admin with the ${LOGALYZE_HOME}/admin/bin/ script on Linux, or shutdown.bat on Windows.
