Install Binary Distribution

Prerequisites

Important

Orion requires Java 11+; earlier versions are not supported.

For production systems, we recommend running Besu and Orion in separate instances. If running Besu and Orion in the same instance, restrict the amount of memory used by each JVM to ensure each has enough memory.

Install Binaries

Download the Orion packaged binaries.

Unpack the downloaded files and change into the orion-<release> directory.

Display Orion command line help to confirm installation:

$ bin/orion --help
bin\orion --help
