Building a Release

Building a Release


make rel

to build a release.

It can be found under _build/default/rel/antidote.

Using a Release

After building a release with make rel, Antidote can be started with the generated executable file. The release executable is located at _build/default/bin/rel/antidote/releases/bin/antidote. It should be started with the node name and cookie configured. Setting the cookie is optional, setting the node name is mandatory.

# start antidote with given short node name as a foreground process
NODE_NAME=testing ./antidote foreground
# start antidote with given long node name with an erlang interactive console attached
NODE_NAME=testing ./antidote console

Dynamic Release Configuration

The release executable is dynamically configurable with OS environment variables. The default configuration can be found in the config file folder config. Only NODE_NAME, COOKIE, ROOT_DIR_PREFIX, LOGGER_DIR_PREFIX and DATA_DIR_PREFIX are expected to be provided via OS environment variables. All other configuration has to be set via erlang application environment arguments -Application Par Val, where variable expansion can be used in the Val part.


```shell script

start antidote with a unified directory, set logging level to warning

assume NODE_NAME, ROOT_PREFIX_DIR (antidote/), P1, P2, P3, P4, and P5 OS variables

have been exported before

modify appliation configurations (see sys.config.src and other .config files for options)

logging level and all ports

disable certification checks for concurrent transactions

./antidote foreground -kernel logging_level warning -riak_core handoff_port $P1 -ranch pb_port $P2 -antidote pubsub_port $P3 -antidote logreader_port $P4 -antidote_stats metrics_port $P5 -antidote txn_check false ```
