Starting and stopping DSE Search 

The way you start a DSE Search node depends on the type of installation.

To install a DSE Search node, use the same installation procedure as you use to install any other type of node. To use real-time (Cassandra), analytics (Hadoop/Spark), or DSE Search nodes in the same cluster, segregate the different nodes into separate datacenters. Using the default DSESimpleSnitch automatically puts all the DSE Search nodes in the same datacenter, so you need to change the snitch from the default to another type for multiple datacenter deployment.

Starting and stopping a DSE Search node 

The way you start a DSE Search node depends on the type of installation:

  • Installer-No Services and Tarball installations:

    From the install directory, use this command to start the DSE Search node:
    $ bin/dse cassandra -s

    The node starts up.

    From the install directory, use this command to stop the node:
    $ bin/dse cassandra-stop
  • Installer-Services and Package installations:
    1. Enable DSE Search mode by setting this option in the /etc/default/dse file:
      SOLR_ENABLED=1
    2. Start the dse service using this command:
      $ sudo service dse start

      The DSE Search node starts.

    You stop a node using this command:
    $ sudo service dse stop
