Update XTRF

This document is intended for Server Administrators with sufficient technical skills. 

Windows Server

  1. Make sure that your server meets the requirements listed in the following article: .

  2. Download the jboss-xtrf-full-9.x.y.zip file from https://ssm.xtrf.eu/.

  3. Stop all XTRF services from services.msc.

  4. Database backup is recommended. Please follow the instructions in the link: Database backup.

  5. Rename the C:\jboss-xtrf\ folder to C:\jboss-xtrf_OLD_yyyy-mm-dd.

  6. Extract the downloaded archive to C:\jboss-xtrf\ so you have C:\jboss-xtrf\bin subdirectory. Please make sure that the new JBoss folder is located exactly as the one you had before.

  7. Copy the following file (xtrfDatabaseConfig.xml) from the old JBoss directory (C:\jboss-xtrf_OLD_yyyy-mm-dd\standalone\configuration) to the new, unzipped jboss-xtrf folder (C:\jboss-xtrf\standalone\configuration)Database Backup - XTRF Help - XTRF Knowledge Base.

  8. Adjust the local configuration C:\jboss-xtrf\bin\standalone.local.bat if necessary, based on the previous version.

  9. Run (as administrator) the install-windows-service.bat in C:\jboss-xtrf\bin to create and update XTRF services. From 9.3, this step is critical.

  10. Copy all custom applications (*.war) from old standalone/custom-deployments/ to a new JBoss directory.

  11. Start all XTRF services through services.msc. Note that this may include newly created services.

Debian Linux


Package change

Starting with XTRF 8.6, the package has been redesigned and renamed to xtrf9-full The contents are largely unchanged. In order to update to this version, simply install the new package.

  1. Make sure that your server meets the requirements listed in the following article: 

    1. Specifically, Debian 9 Stretch is no longer supported

  2. Update the XTRF repository address in your apt configuration as it has changed with the release of XTRF 9.3. You should get it from our Service Desk

  3. Execute the following commands on your server:

    sudo apt-get update sudo apt-get install xtrf9-full
  4. The script will download the latest XTRF 9.x, perform a database backup (only with unmodified configuration), upgrade the necessary files, and restart your new system

  5. As of release 9.3, the package installs an additional service jboss-xtrf-file-stats.service running on the same java version as the core application. This service is decoupled from the main application for performance reasons.

Debian maintenance procedures

You can restart XTRF manually by issuing the following command:

 systemctl restart jboss-xtrf.service

XTRF is managed as a systemd service, so all the usual administrative commands from systemd apply.
