Qlikview on Linux

Hello All

I did some homework before posting this discussion. Does Qlik supports Qlikview on Linux, i saw posts on linux with Wine. is this officially supported ? what is the best way to use Qlikview on linux servers ...how it works if we want to do server clustering? I never worked on linux env ...  sorry if i am being stupid .. any Qlik doc helps ... thank you

No, it is not supported for Linux. The engine only runs on Windows.

I have tried QlikView Desktop on a Linux machine using Wine, and it works... sort of. But there are a number of problems, e.g. with ODBC. So the bottom line is: No - I cannot recommend it.

The other alternative is to run QlikView Desktop/server through a Virtual machine like Virtualbox (actually, this is the one that I've tested. I've tested it on Mac, but there is also a version for several Linux distributions). I can tell you, that desktop runs fine, even connecting to databases through OLEDB (I haven't tested OBDC). I've also tested server but just with simple documents. You may give it a try with this approach.

but i heard virtualization makes the performance very slow ? how big is your data .. did you see any performance impact ?

Having QlikView running in a virtual enviroment is no the ideal scenario, however it can run quite well. The installations I've seen in virtual environments run well, but it is recommended that you assign at least 20-30% more resources than it would be for a native installation (it is just a rough approximation). What I can tell you about virtualization is that per se it can lead to unexpected behaviors that are not present in native installations, that's why is not the best scenario,

Dear Henric,

Is there a plan in the product roadmap to extend it to Linux?

Thanks,
