Striim 3.10.3 documentation

Using ssh to run the Striim console in EC2

To access the Striim instance's command line, use ssh. On Windows, you can get ssh by installing the Windows Subsystem for Linux or, if your Windows version does not support that, you can install Cygwin or the third-party utilities WinSCP and Putty, or use the AWS Command Line Interface (AWS CLI).

The syntax is:

ssh -i <private key file name> centos@<Public DNS string>
  • The private key file is the .pem file 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>

  • centos is the Linux user name used by the Striim server.

  • You can find the Public DNS string for the Striim instance on the AWS Instances page. The format of this string is ec2-<Public IP>.<EC2 region>

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

When ssh connects to the Striim instance, you will see something like this:

TIBCO Silver -  CentOS 6.5 x86_64 AMI

To run the console, enter:

sudo /opt/Striim/bin/ -c StriimCluster
