This guide will help you plan your Unomaly installation, install Unomaly in your environment, and configure your Unomaly instance after it finishes installing. Installing and starting to use Unomaly requires you to complete three stages:

  • Install Unomaly in your environment
  • Configure your environment to send data to Unomaly
  • Unomaly builds a baseline of current state based on the data

Plan your Unomaly deployment

Depending on the hardware specifications, a single instance can handle up to 2500 events per second. We recommend installing a distributed deployment for data volumes greater than 2500 events per second.

The number of Unomaly instances you need to install depends on the volume of data that each instance will analyze every second. Refer to the following table for the recommended minimum hardware requirements.

Volume of data CPU Memory Disk
Up to 500 EPS 2x 64-bit cores @ 2 GHz 8 GB RAM 500 GB
Up to 2500 EPS 8x 64-bit cores @ 2 GHz 16 GB RAM 500 GB
More than 2500 EPS 8x 64-bit cores @ 2 GHz 16 GB RAM 1000 GB

Make sure to select virtual or physical hardware that supports Debian 64-bit.

For geographically distributed environments or environments with extreme performance requirements, contact Unomaly Support for a custom solution.

Network and Communication settings

Unomaly needs access to your network to be able to function, so depending on your environment you may need to change or set up specific network policies on for example your firewall or your cloud environment. See “Network and communication settings” for more details.

Supported browsers

Use one of the following browsers to access the Unomaly user interface.

  • Chrome
  • Firefox

The minimum recommended screen resolution is 1280 x 1024 pixels.

Installation instructions

Installing Unomaly takes about 30 minutes. Follow the step-by-step instructions for installing Unomaly on the environment that applies to you. Each instruction links to the required download for the installation.

Type of installation Instructions Required download
Physical machines Install on physical machines ISO
Virtual servers Install on virtual servers ISO
Cloud services Install on AWS with the Unomaly AMI
Install on AWS instances
Install on Azure instances
Install on GCP instances

After installing Unomaly, there are a few first-time configurations Unomaly needs before the installation is finished:

  • Add a valid Unomaly license
  • Enable instance and UI metrics
  • Set up email communications
  • Create the first user

(Recommended) Navigate to the Unomaly web interface and follow the steps in the configuration wizard.

You can also finish the install from the command prompt using the console menu, “Configure Unomaly using the console”.
