BMC TrueSight Pulse Meter - Clean Install for Mac OS X

NOTE On October 11, 2016, BMC released Meter Version 4.4.1 which changed the name of the meter from boundary-meter to truesight-meter. This article reflects the change. If you are using a meter version prior to 4.4.1, then you will need to reference boundary-meter instead of truesight-meter in the operations discussed in this article.

Install the BMC TrueSight Pulse meter on Mac OS X

The first step is to get the install API token for your account, located at > My Account > Product Security.

NOTE: Previously this was located in Settings > Account tab. The format of the token has changed but older tokens will still work as well.

TrueSight Pulse and TrueSight Intelligence account management functions are now consolidated into a single point of administration called TrueSight Account Manager.


The next step is to download the BMC TrueSight Pulse Mac OS X Package installer from here:

Double clicking on the package installer may produce the following message:

 Click 'Continue'.

Please click 'agree' to accept the license terms.

Click 'Install'.

Enter your API key and click 'Continue".

The install directory is /opt/truesight and to confirm the meter is running you can:

- run ‘sudo /opt/truesight/etc/meterctl status’



To stop and uninstall the meter, run:

'sudo /opt/truesight/etc/meterctl uninstall'
