Install and configure SEM
After you determine your logging strategy, install SolarWinds SEM. Use the resource links in the SEM Installation Guide to install and configure SEM in your environment.
You may find the following topics in the SEM Installation Guide helpful:
- SEM overview
- SEM deployment examples
- SEM system requirements
- License your SEM deployment
- Run the activate command to secure SEM and configure network settings
Be sure to reserve memory and CPU resources for SEM, and not just allocate these resources. For more information on reserving resources for SEM, see The Reason why SEM Needs Memory and CPU Resource Reservations.
After you have installed SEM, return to this guide and continue to the next section.
