Installing on Linux and Solaris

You install the native client on Linux and Solaris by extracting the contents of a ZIP file. After installation, you add environment settings.

Installation Prerequisites

Before you install the Pivotal GemFire native client, you must complete the following prerequisites:

Installation Path for Linux

The default installation path is NativeClient_Linux_architecture_xxxx_bNNNN and reflects the architecture, product version and build number identified in the filename of the installer .zip file.

Installation Path for Solaris

The default installation path is NativeClient_Solaris_architecture_xxxx_bNNNN and reflects the architecture, product version and build number identified in the filename of the installer .zip file.

Environment Settings

When the installation is complete, you add these environment settings:
  • Set the GFCPP environment variable to productDir, where productDir represents the NativeClient__platform_architecture_xxxx directory (where platform is the OS you are installing upon, architecture is 32bit or 64bit, and xxxx is the four-digit product version).
  • Add $GFCPP/bin to the PATH.
  • Add $GFCPP/lib to the LD_LIBRARY_PATH.
