##Building Scylla

In addition to required packages by Seastar, the following packages are required by Scylla.


Scylla uses submodules, so make sure you pull the submodules first by doing:

git submodule init
git submodule update --recursive

Building and Running Scylla on Fedora

  • Installing required packages:
sudo yum install yaml-cpp-devel lz4-devel zlib-devel snappy-devel jsoncpp-devel thrift-devel antlr3-tool antlr3-C++-devel libasan libubsan gcc-c++ gnutls-devel ninja-build ragel libaio-devel cryptopp-devel xfsprogs-devel numactl-devel hwloc-devel libpciaccess-devel libxml2-devel python3-pyparsing lksctp-tools-devel
  • Build Scylla
    ./ --mode=release --with=scylla --disable-xen
    ninja-build build/release/scylla -j2 # you can use more cpus if you have tons of RAM

* Run Scylla


* run Scylla with one CPU and ./tmp as data directory

./build/release/scylla --datadir tmp --commitlog-directory tmp --smp 1

* For more run options:

./build/release/scylla --help

## Building Fedora RPM

As a pre-requisite, you need to install [Mock]( on your machine:

Install mock:

sudo yum install mock

Add user to the "mock" group:

usermod -a -G mock $USER && newgrp mock

Then, to build an RPM, run:


The built RPM is stored in ``/var/lib/mock/<configuration>/result`` directory.
For example, on Fedora 21 mock reports the following:

INFO: Done(scylla-server-0.00-1.fc21.src.rpm) Config(default) 20 minutes 7 seconds
INFO: Results and/or logs in: /var/lib/mock/fedora-21-x86_64/result

## Building Fedora-based Docker image

Build a Docker image with:

cd dist/docker
docker build -t <image-name> .

Run the image with:

docker run -p $(hostname -i):9042:9042 -i -t <image name>
