Service configuration [VC 21.3 GEN]

The vidispine service user

The post-installation script in the packages will create the vidispine user and group if they do not exist.

If you want to make sure that the vidispine user has a specific UID and GID, then create the vidispine user and group manually before installing any packages.

Service dependencies

If you’re running all components on the same server, then it can be beneficial to make sure that the transcoder and Solr are started before Vidispine.

Create a systemd unit.d directory and override the service dependencies in a drop-in file:

$ vi /etc/systemd/system/vidispine.service.d/local.conf
Wants=transcoder.service solr.service

$ systemctl daemon-reload
$ systemctl enable vidispine

Setting JVM options

Create a systemd drop-in file and override the default JAVA_OPTS:

$ vi /etc/systemd/system/vidispine.service.d/local.conf
Environment="JAVA_OPTS=-Xmx8192m -XX:MaxPermSize=512m"
