DIGIT Quickstart setup helps in installing the DIGIT Infra on a local machine/VM. This installation is not meant for production use. However, this quick setup flow familiarizes users with the key production-grade setup processes.
Quickstart is recommended for basic infra types like a local machine, setting up on a single VM, etc. This setup creates a lightweight Kubernetes (k3d ) cluster which does not require a full-fledged cloud setup or multiple VMs. See the open source project k3d to learn more. Install the k3d on a local or on a VM once all the pre-requisites and hardware requirements specified below are met.
To install k3d, make sure the instance meets the following hardware requirements to ensure sufficient CPU and memory in default systems and meets the DIGIT setup requirement.
Apart from the regular system usage, DIGIT requires the following dedicated CPU/Memory specs:
OS: Ubuntu 18.04 or Debian 10 or Windows 10 or Mac OSX
Local machine or VM or bare metal
16 GiB of RAM (recommend 20+)
30 GiB of HDD (recommend 40+)
NAT or Bridged networking with access to the internet
Before proceeding with DIGIT quick setup - Check the machine's remaining CPU/Memory capacity. Use the following commands to fetch the memory details. The commands vary from OS to OS. Click on the specific OS option below to view the instructions.
Windows - On Command Prompt
Linux - On Terminal
Mac - On terminal
Note: The output of the commands in the above links provides the total memory/CPU and unused/free/available memory/CPU details. Make sure the unused/free/available memory matches the following specs:
Once the above prerequisites are met, proceed with the following steps -
