The FISHEYE_INST environment variable allows you to separate your FishEye installation data (caches, indexes, temp files, etc.) from the installation binaries. The FISHEYE_INST environment variable is optional. If you choose not to set it, by default FishEye will create all installation data inside the directory that you unpack the binaries.
Please note that this environment variable is differnt from FISHEYE_HOME variable. By default, FISHEYE_HOME is the directory that contains the default binaries that are shipped with the product.

I was running through Stage 5 of the DragonSlayer and ran into a problem related to this answer, so thought I'd post my observation:
In these Slayer instructions, it has the user setup FECRU_INST, but you never set FISHEYE_INST. Then when you get to step 3.8, you're only given the option of using "FISHEYE_INST/lib" when trying to tell the wizard where you JDBC driver lives. This got me completely stuck because the FISHEYE_INST variable is never set. From reading the details above, guess I could have just put the JDBC driver into my application installation /lib directory, but didn't find this information until I had already restarted the fisheye/crucible installation section over from scratch end setting both variables FECRU_INST and FISHEYE_INST and going back over the steps. Worked.. =)
