2.4 Standalone Mode

While EventQL is a distributed database first and foremost it also implements a "standalone mode". In the standalone mode evqld runs as a standalone process on a single machine and has no further dependencies. The standalone mode is ideal for evaluating and quickly get EventQL running on your development machine. You can have a standalone EventQL server up and running in seconds.

To start a server in standalone mode all you need to provide is a data directory. The commands below will start a server process that stores its database in /var/evql/standalone.

$ mkdir -p /var/evql/standalone
$ evqld --standalone --datadir /var/evql/standalone
