Activation-Linux version of Server?
  • VoteVote Up6Vote Down     steve November 22, 2011 4:29AM
    This idea is to create a full activated Linux version of Omniscope, which would be:

    • installable (by extracting & following simple instructions)
    • licensable (through activation, as per the Windows and Mac versions, but supporting command-line activation)
    • supporting any common x86 or x64 Linux systems on which Java 6+ runs
    • compatible with text-only Linux servers, for use in headless mode as Server edition
    • compatible with graphical Linux servers, for use as a UI application as Viewer, Desktop or Server editions
    • supporting use as a service under /etc/init.d

    Having been a Windows man since '92 I finally installed Ubuntu 6 months ago and now spend as much time there as I can (dragged back into Windows for Omniscope!)... so I would love to be able to run Omniscope Pro / Ent on Ubuntu... get's a vote from me.

    The priority for a linux version would be to support use on (text-only) servers; initially we might not provide, for example, a web view in the linux version, but would still aim to provide an otherwise fully featured desktop version. Most requests for linux versions have been for server editions.

    We run a linux webserver and mySQL server in a remote datacenter and we would like at some stage to run Omniscope Server on the same machine in order to give fast/realtime access to mySQL data files. Right now we would need to rent a second windows server in the same datacenter which is expensive. So I vote for the Linux license activation.

    We have a customer who will purchase an Omniscope Server license right now (subject to satisfactory trial) if it is available to run on a Linux server. Also would purchase two or three Desktop licenses for Windows.

    Do you have any estimate as to when Linux activation might be available?

    FYI, this feature is now publicly available in 2.8 beta:
