Installation

The Argus service is composed of three components, the PAP, PDP, and PEPd. The following steps provide instructions for installing each component.

  1. Download the latest version version of the software.
  2. Expand the downloaded archive to the /opt/argus directory.
    • This resulting installation directory /opt/argus/pap will be referred to, in the documentation, as PAP_HOME
  3. Export the environment variable PAP_HOME=/opt/argus/pap
  4. Add the /opt/argus/pap/bin to your PATH in order to use the PAP pap-admin command

PDP Installation

  1. Download the latest version version of the software.
  2. Expand the downloaded archive in to the /opt/argus directory.
    • This resulting installation directory /opt/argus/pdp will be referred to, in documentation, as PDP_HOME

PEPd Installation

  1. Download the latest version version of the software.
  2. Expand the downloaded archive in to the /opt/argus directory.
    • The resulting installation directory /opt/argus/pepd will be referred to, in documentation, as PEPD_HOME

Starting/Stop the Services

To start/stop the PAP you can use the command /opt/argus/pap/bin/pap-standalone start|stop.

To start/stop the PDP you can use the command /opt/argus/pdp/bin/pdpctl.sh start|stop.
