SSH into your main deployment host and perform the following:

  1. Change to the memsql-studio-<version> directory where you unpacked MemSQL Studio.

    cd memsql-studio-<version>
  2. Start MemSQL Studio from the command line. Use nohup to prevent memsql-studio from terminating when you close your terminal session.

    nohup ./memsql-studio > studio.stdout 2> studio.stderr < /dev/null &

Add A New Cluster to MemSQL Studio

  1. With MemSQL Studio running, go to http://<main_deployment_host>:8080 and click Add New Cluster to set up a cluster.

    To run Studio on a different port, add port = <port_name> to /etc/memsql/memsql-studio.hcl and restart Studio.

  2. Paste the main deployment host IP address into Hostname.

  3. Set Port to 3306.

  4. Specify root as the Username and leave Password empty.

  5. Click Create Cluster Profile and set Type as Development.

After you have successfully logged in, you will see the dashboard for your cluster. To run a query against your cluster, navigate to the SQL Editor through the navigation in the left pane.
