The following tasks must be performed once to create the IAM user, policy, and role and the EC2 security group required when Creating a node from an Amazon EC2 AMI . If you do not have administrative privileges, have your AWS administrator perform these tasks.
1. Go to Striim’s page in the AWS Marketplace
2. Select desired Region, then click ‘Continue’
3. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and select the key pair to use with Striim. If you do not have a key pair in the selected region, follow the instructions to create one.
4. Scroll back to the top of the page and click Accept Software Terms & Launch with 1-Click
5. When you get an email from The AWS Marketplace Team notifying you that your subscription is ready, click the link to the Your Software page.
6. Click View Instances > Access Software.
1. Read the end user license agreement, then click Accept and Continue.
2. Start system check
3. Enter your name, email, and any cluster name and passwords you you like. Be sure to remember the cluster name and admin password, since you will need them to log in to Striim and run the Striim console.
4. Leave the IAM Role blank and click Continue.
5. Optionally, choose to start Kafka locally or specify an existing external Kafka cluster, then click Save and Continue:
6. Leave the license key field blank and click Continue:
7. Click Launch
When launch has completed, it leaves you at the login page on port 9080. You can follow the ‘Quick Start’ tutorial found in our documentation which is accessible through the Striim Web User Interface’s homepage.
To access the Striim instances command line, use
ssh (requires Linux or Mac OS X or a third-part Windows ssh client). The syntax is:
ssh -i <private key file name> ec2-user@<Public DNS string>
.pemfile specified in the “Select an existing key pair or create a key pair” step above. Before using
ssh, you must run this command on the private key file once:
chmod 400 <private key file name>
ec2-useris the Linux user name used by the Striim server.
ec2-<Public IP>.<EC2 region>.compute.amazon.com.
Putting all these together, the command would look something like this (assuming you ran it from the same directory where the
.pem file is stored):
ssh -i MyStriimUser.pem firstname.lastname@example.org
When ssh connects to the Striim instance, you will see something like this:
TIBCO Silver - CentOS 6.5 x86_64 AMI Bootstrap complete. Visit http://silver.tibco.com for more information. us-west-1b-i-07e1133b674e72aed [ec2-user:~]$
To run the console, enter:
sudo /opt/Striim/bin/console.sh -c StriimCluster
