These are the requirements to run Grouperfish. For development, see Hacking.
A machine running a Unix-style OS (such as Linux).
Support for windows currently not planned (and probably not easy to add).
So far, we have been using Red Hat 5.2 and – for development – Mac OS X 10.6+.
JRE 6 or higher
Python 2.6 or higher (not tested with 3.x)
The ElasticSearch cluster does not need to be running on the same machines as Grouperfish. For Hadoop/HBase you will need to make sure that the configuration is on your classpath (easiest with a local installation).
Prepare your installation¶
Obtain a grouperfish tarball  and unpack it into a directory of your choice.
> tar xzf grouperfish-0.1.tar > cd grouperfish-0.1
config, modify the
elasticsearch_hc.ymlso that Grouperfish will be able to discover your cluster. Advanced: You can modify the
elasticsearch.ymlto make each Grouperfish instance run its own ElasticSearch data node. By default, Grouperfish depends on joining an existing cluster though. Refer to the ElasticSearch configuration documentation for details.
- In the
hazelcast.xml, have a look at
<network>section. If your network does not support multicast based discovery, make changes as described in the Hazelcast documentation.
|||right now, the only way is to build it from source. See Hacking.|
Launch the daemon¶
To run grouperfish (currently, no service wrapper is available):
grouperfish-0.1> ./bin/grouperfish -f
Grouperfish will be listening on port 61732
FISH = 0xF124 = 61732).
You can safely ignore the logback warning (which will only appear with
given). It is due to an error in logback.
-f to run grouperfish as a background process, detached from your
shell. You can use
jps to determine the process id.
