User Privileges:

    Installation is completed via tarball
    User needs to be able to create directories, launch scripts, and start processes (java processes)
    SUDO is not required
    ULIMIT settings of 4096 or higher (see below)
      All owl services typically consume about 428 threads.
      During each owlcheck about 400 additional threads are consumed.
      Thus 4096 threads can allow for about 9 concurrent owlcheck jobs (on a standalone install). If more are needed plan accordingly.

Default Ports used by Owl

    5432 - Postgres
    9000 – Owl-web

Planning the installation

It is alway best to consult the field team from Owl for more information about what options make the most sense for your environment.
    1.
    Determine how we are planning to install Owl (standalone or distributed) as shown in Owl-Analytics Architecture section
    2.
    Plan infrastructure, scale, and HA
    3.
    Validate your system prereqs
    4.
