The Spring Insight Agent software running on each tc Server instance submits application trace information to the server that hosts Spring Insight Dashboard, where the information is compiled and displayed in the Insight Dashboard user interface.
Perform the steps in this procedure for each tc Server instance that will participate in your Web application cluster, except for the server that hosts Insight Dashboard.
On each computer where you will install a tc Server instance, except for the server that runs Spring Insight Dashboard, create a directory for tc Server.
Copy or upload the tc Server Standard Edition ZIP or compressed TAR file you downloaded into the directory that you created for tc Server.
Extract the tc Server Standard Edition ZIP or compressed TAR file into the directory you created.

In a Unix terminal window or Windows command prompt, change to

instance that will run Spring Insight Agent.
For example, enter the following command on one line:
prompt$ ./tcruntime-instance.sh create
N-t insight-agent -p insight-agent.dashboard.jms.connect.uri=tcp://
