MMTE Software Components

MetaMiner Tableau Edition (MMTE) consists of three major software components:

  1. MMTE Server
  2. MMTE Administrator
  3. MMTE Client

There are several add-ons for MMTE available. Each of them needs to be installed separately and is not described in this documentation.

The following additional components are installed together with MetaMiner Tableau Edition:

  • Oracle Java SE/JRE 8 (platform version 1.8): MMTE comes with a private installation of Java SE. Normally you do not need to substitute it with some other version, see

  • Embedded PostgreSQL database run-time environment is automatically installed with MMTE Server and MMTE Administrator. MMTE Server sets it up, starts, and stops automatically.

  • PostgreSQL ODBC driver: required to connect to PostgreSQL on Windows OS

  • pgAdmin: Windows utility for managing PostgreSQL databases

  • Google Chrome: recommended web browser

  • Pulse, or Grafana 5.3: online monitoring service. Make sure you enabled it in the General Settings in MMTE Administrator.

  • InfluxDB: database service for storing data series for Grafana. Make sure you enabled it in the Advanced Settings in MMTE Administrator.

  • MetaMiner Remote Tableau Metrics Agent (MMRMA or tabagent): a tool for monitoring Tableau system metrics: CPU, RAM, network. You need to specify the full filename of it in the System Settings in MMTE Administrator. Its installer is provided inside of MMTE Server. It needs to be installed on Tableau Servers.

  • MetaMiner Query Agent: a tool for executing queries sent from Meta Query tab in MMTE Client. Installed together with MMTE Server and controlled by it.

  • comparepdfcmd: a tool by Qtrac Ltd. for finding differences between two files in the PDF format. Its binary files are installed together with MMTE Server but need to be activated by the end user. This is required if you wish to use PDF Diff in the Workbook Validation tab of MMTE Client. Read here how to install and configure comparepdfcmd.

  • PortQry: a CLI-utility by Microsoft for troubleshooting TCP/IP connectivity issues, see

  • LOGBack: a framework for generating and managing system logs, see

  • Several other third-party Java modules available for re-distribution
