RPM package and PrestoSQL Admin#

Users of Linux distributions that use the RPM Package Manager (RPM) format, such as CentOS or Red Hat Enterprise Linux, can use the rpm package and manage a cluster with PrestoSQL Admin.

RPM package#

  • Download the rpm

  • Use the rpm or yum command to install the package:

    rpm -i presto-server-rpm-*.rpm
  • Manage the PrestoSQL server with the service command:

    service presto [start|stop|restart|status]

The rpm package places the various files used by PrestoSQL in accordance to the Linux Filesystem Hierarchy Standard. This differs from the default installation of PrestoSQL with the tar.gz, where all folders are in the installation directory. For example, configuration files are by default located in the etc folder within the installation directory. The rpm package installation however uses /etc/presto. More details are available with the rpm package source.

PrestoSQL Admin#

PrestoSQL Admin is a tool for installing and managing PrestoSQL on a cluster. It uses the rpm package and provides easy-to-use commands to:

  • Install and uninstall PrestoSQL across your cluster

  • Configure your PrestoSQL cluster

  • Start and stop the PrestoSQL servers

  • Gather status and log information from your PrestoSQL cluster

For a detailed explanation of all of the commands and their options, read on in the comprehensive PrestoSQL Admin documentation
