Installing and Configuring the MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server

improve this page | report issue


The Mobile Analytics Receiver server is optional server that can be deployed to send Mobile Foundation Analytics Events from mobile client applications instead of to the Mobile Foundation Server runtime. This deployment option enables offloading analytics events processing from the Mobile Foundation server runtime thereby allowing it’s resources to be fully utilized for runtime functions.

The MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server is delivered as single WAR file. You should install this in seperate server. You can install it with one of the following methods:

  • Installation with Ant tasks
  • Manual installation

After you installed the MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server in the web application server of your choice, you have additional configuration to do. For more information, see Configuring MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server after installation below. If you choose a manual setup in the installer, see the documentation for the application server of your choice.

Note: Do not install more than one instance of MobileFirst Analytics Receiver Server on a single host machine.

The analytics receiver WAR file is included with the MobileFirst Server installation. For more information, see Distribution structure of MobileFirst Server.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
