4.2. Windows Installation

All file paths refer to 64-bit file paths.

4.2.1. Software Installation

  1. Verify your system meets the Windows Requirements.
  2. Download quasardb server installer for Windows from quasardb download site.
  3. Run the setup executable.

The setup program ensures that all required libraries are installed.

4.2.2. Configuration

By default, the quasardb daemon listens on the port 2836 on the local address. The quasardb web bridge listens on the port 8080 on the local address. These may be the IPv6 localhost if IPv6 is installed.

  1. Edit the qdbd configuration file at C:\Program Files\quasardb\conf\qdbd.conf.
    • Set local::user::license_file to your license file path.
    • Add node IP addresses to local::chord::bootstrapping_peers to connect the node to a cluster.
    • Set local::network::listen_on to change the IP address and port qdbd uses.
    • Set other values as needed. See Config File Reference for more information.
  2. (optional) Edit the qdb_httpd configuration file at C:\Program Files\quasardb\conf\qdb_httpd.conf.
    • Set remote_node to the IP address of the quasardb daemon.
    • Set other values as needed. See Config File Reference for more information.

To ensure satisfactory performance, we strongly encourage you to have a look at the tuning guide (Performance tuning).

4.2.3. Test the Node

The qdbd and qdb_httpd daemons are started automatically after installation and will also load when Windows starts.

  1. View the log file at C:\Program Files\quasardb\log\qdbd to verify the qdbd service started without errors.
  2. View the log file at C:\Program Files\quasardb\log\qdb_httpd to verify the qdb_httpd service started without errors.
  3. Start qdbsh and verify the node responds to commands.
  4. Test the node for TCP configuration problems with qdb_max_conn.

4.2.4. Test the Cluster

  1. Benchmark the cluster with qdb-benchmark. See quasardb benchmarking tool for more information.
