Download and Install Kinetica

This tutorial will walk you through how to download and install Kinetica either as a single node instance for simple testing purposes or as a performance-oriented cluster.

Choose a Setup Path

There are two setup paths for the Kinetica Quick Start Guide:

  1. KAgent Installer for Kinetica — Longer setup but provides access to everything Kinetica has to offer with scaling and better performance and utility.

    Tip

    KAgent can provision Kinetica to local hardware or the cloud (AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google Cloud Platform). KAgent can install Kinetica on either already-provisioned cloud hosts or can provision new hosts and install Kinetica on them.

  2. Pre-built Kinetica Docker Container — Simpler and quicker setup but does not scale nor include access to KAgent or the Active Analytics Workbench. Great for quick testing and portability.

    Important

    Parts of the Importing Data section, parts of the Querying with SQL section, and the entire ML-Powered Analytics section require access to the Active Analytics Workbench, so you won’t be able to experience the entire Quick Start Guide experience with this setup path.

Before starting, ensure you have your license key ready.

License Key

No Key, No account
Kinetica requires a license key to activate the product.  Please register for your key.

 

Choose a Starting OS

Use the OS on the desired KAgent host machine to determine the how you should install KAgent. KAgent has two installation options:

  1. Windows/MacOS — Docker
  2. Linux — Package Managers

 

Install Docker

The Quick Start Guide can utilize Docker to get KAgent up-and-running. Visit the Docker documentation to learn how to install Docker on your system.

Download KAgent

After opening a port and using a simple docker run command, KAgent will be available.

Tip

If you plan on installing Kinetica on local hardware or on already-provisioned cloud hosts, the machine(s) should meet the minimum hardware requirements.

Networking Configuration

The KAgent Docker Container requires that one port be made available on the host:

  • 8081 – KAgent

Download

Execute the below command on the Docker host from a shell prompt. This will download the latest KAgent Docker image to your machine and run it.

sudo docker run -d -p 8081:8081 kinetica/kagent

It’s important that the browser window open with KAgent installing Kinetica remain open. If the browser closes at any point, the installation process will be cancelled but can be restarted later by reopening a browser window to KAgent.

A status window will appear, displaying the progress of each job KAgent performs to install and provision Kinetica. The installation may take a while as KAgent adds a repository, downloads the package, installs the package to the directory /opt/gpudb, creates a group named gpudb, and two users (gpudb & gpudb_proc) whose home directories are located in /home/gpudb. This will also register four services on the new Kinetica instances: gpudb, gpudb_host_manager, kagent_ui, and kml (for AAW).

 

Important

The single node installation path using the Kinetica Docker container will not include access to KAgent or the Active Analytics Workbench. This installation path is strictly for light testing and development.
