    Deploying VisibleThread Readability/Insights on Red Hat


    This guide assumes you have a running RHEL server with active subscription.

    Note: Deployments have been tested on RHEL versions 7.2, 7.3, 7.4, 7.5, 7.6
              Deployments have been tested on VMware ESX Vsphere, Hyper-V, Azure, AWS



    VisibleThread Readability .rpm has some dependencies that are not available in the default Red Hat repositories :

    • Postgres 10 (provided by RedHat Software Collections repository))
    • Supervisor (provided by Fedora EPEL repository)


    To add the Postgres 10 repository run:

    subscription-manager repos --enable rhel-server-rhscl-7-rpms




    To add the Fedora EPEL (Extra Packages for Enterprise Linux) repository run:

    yum install -y

    Supervisor should now be available to install.
