Installing on Linux

A complete deployment of BigFix InventoryLicense Metric Tool on Linux requires the installation of three components: the BigFix platform, the BigFix InventoryLicense Metric Tool server, and DB2 database. Additionally, a BigFix client must be installed on every computer from which you want to collect software inventory data. Depending on the environment size, you can install all components on a single computer, or distribute them among multiple computers.
