Prior to installing the Talend products

This page is deprecated: although the information provided may still be applicable, it will not be maintained. Please visit the Talend Help Center website to read the latest and most accurate installation information, and update your bookmarks.

 

This page provides useful information on software and hardware prerequisites you should be aware of, prior to starting the installation of the Talend modules.

[Note]  

In the following page:

  • certified: designates an environment certified by Talend through QA tests prior to the release of the software;

  • supported: designates an environment that can be provided by Talend for problem reproduction and testing within 24 hours;

  • supported with limitations: designates an environment that is supported by Talend under certain conditions explained in notes.

Installation requirements

To make the most out of the Talend products you subscribed to, please consider the following hardware and software requirements.

Memory usage

Memory usage heavily depends on the size and nature of your Talend projects. However, in summary, if your Jobs include many transformation components, you should consider upgrading the total amount of memory allocated to your servers, based on the following recommendations.

Product

Client/Server

Recommended alloc. memory

Talend MDM Web User Interface

Server

1GB minimum (default configuration), 4 GB recommended

Studio

Client

3GB minimum, 4 GB recommended

Talend Runtime

Server

2GB minimum, 4 GB recommended1

1. Memory requirements depend on the executed processes.

Disk usage

The same requirements also apply for disk usage. It also depends on your projects but can be summarized as:

Product

Client/Server

Required disk space for installation

Required disk space for use

Talend MDM Web User Interface

Server

700 MB

-(server) 1 GB+

-(MDM database) 2 x # records number in KB. For example: 5 million records = 10 GB. This represents the size that will be needed on the disk.

However, we recommend to multiply the size really needed on the disk by 2 in order to avoid problems during high transactions.

Studio

Client

3GB

3+ GB

Talend Runtime

Server

400MB

400+ MB

Environment variable configuration

Prior to installing your Talend solutions, you have to set the JAVA_HOME Environment variable:

  • Define your JAVA_HOME environment variable so that it points to the JDK directory.

    For example, if the JDK path is C:\Java\JDKx.x.x\bin, you must set the JAVA_HOME environment variable to point to: C:\Java\JDKx.x.x.

     

    It is highly recommended that the full path to the server installation directory is as short as possible and does not contain any space character. If you already have a suitable JDK installed in a path with a space, you simply need to put quotes around the path when setting the values for the environment variable.

Compatible Apache versions for ESB components

Some of the ESB components use Apache software components (for example, Apache CXF, Apache Camel). For details on the exact software versions involved, see the section on Apache software in the product release notes.

Compatible Platforms

Despite our intensive tests, you might encounter some issues when installing our products on some Operating Systems.

Please refer to the grids below for a summary of supported OS and Java Runtime environments.

Talend Studio

 

On Linux, the xulrunner package is required to run the Studio. Please install mozilla-xulrunner192 – Mozilla Runtime Environment 1.9.2. and add the line

-Dorg.eclipse.swt.browser.XULRunnerPath=</usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2.17>

at the end of the .ini file that corresponds to your Studio (where </usr/lib/xulrunner-1.9.2.17> is the xulrunner installation path).

Port information

This section describes the most important TCP/IP ports the Talend products use. Please make sure that your firewall configuration is compatible with these ports or change the default ports where needed.

Table Information :

Port: a TCP/IP port or a range of ports

Direction: In (Inbound); Out (Outbound) - related to the communication direction (e.g. a HTTP Port for a CXF Route or Service we listen on request) will be an ‘Inbound’ port. A Browser who send a request e.g. to port 7080 will have this port as ‘Outbound’ port in this list.

Usage: which part of the Product component uses this port (e.g. 1099 is used by the JMX Monitoring component of Talend Runtime).

Config: the file or location where the value can be changed.

Remark: anything which is important to mention additionally.
