This topic describes the following support considerations for Gateway Server:
Oracle database support
|Oracle version||Support for|
|11g, 12c||TrueSight Capacity Optimization components|
|11g, 12c||UNIX Populate|
Oracle Populate support
To use the Oracle Populate feature on UNIX, you must install the UNIX Gateway Server on platforms that support the specific Oracle client you are using. The table below lists the supported Oracle and UNIX operating systems per Oracle client version.
Oracle Populate support on an Oracle 64-bit client
RHEL 6 requires the 64-bit Oracle client while other supported Linux OS variants require a 32-bit Oracle client. You must install the client using the full installation package and not the Oracle Instant Client package.
You can validate the appropriate Oracle client for use with UNIX Populate by running the
file command against the
$BEST1_HOME/bgs/bin/populate_ora## binary where
## is the Oracle version (for example,
populate_ora11 is for the Oracle 11 client). Additionally:
- If the
filecommand indicates that the mpopulate binary is ELF 64-bit or contains x86-64, that means it requires a 64-bit Oracle Client.
- If it reports ELF 32-bit or contains 'Intel 80386', that means it requires a 32-bit Oracle Client.

Running multiple versions of the Perform Agent
On UNIX systems, you can install and run different versions of the Perform Agent on different computers in the same network. This feature lets you stage a planned upgrade of a later version of Perform Agent in a multi-computer environment.
