DataStax Enterprise 6.8 can be installed in a number of ways, depending on the purpose of the installation, the type of operating system, and the available permissions.
Information about configuring DataStax Enterprise, such as recommended production setting, configuration files, snitch configuration, start-up parameters, heap dump settings, using virtual nodes, and more.
Recommended production settings
Recommended settings for Linux platforms on DataStax Enterprise.
YAML and configuration properties
Information on how to configure DataStax Enterprise using the cassandra.yaml, dse.yaml, cassandra-rackdc.properties, and cassandra-topology.properties files.
Cloud provider snitches
Set up Ec2Snitch, Ec2MultiRegionSnitch, GoogleCloudSnitch, or CloudstackSnitch.
JVM system properties
Modify DataStax Enterprise system properties from the startup command line or file.
Choosing a compaction strategy
How to choose the best compaction strategy.
NodeSync service
Continuous background repair that virtually eliminates manual efforts to run repair operations in a DataStax cluster.
Configuring Virtual Nodes
Topics about setting up and enabling virtual nodes (vnodes).
Information on using DSE Analytics, DSE Search, DSE Graph, DSEFS (DataStax Enterprise file system), and DSE Advanced Replication.
DSE Analytics
DataStax Enterprise 6.8 Analytics includes integration with Apache Spark.
DSE Search
DSE Search allows you to quickly find data and provide a modern search experience for your users, helping you create features like product catalogs, document repositories, ad-hoc reporting engines, and more.
DataStax Graph
Documentation for developers and administrators on installing, configuring, and using the features and capabilities of DataStax Graph (DSG).
NodeSync service
Continuous background repair that virtually eliminates manual efforts to run repair operations in a DataStax cluster.
DSE Advanced Replication
Documentation for configuring and using configurable distributed data replication.
Developing applications with DataStax drivers
The DataStax drivers are the primary resource for application developers creating solutions using DataStax Enterprise (DSE).
Tools include nodetool, dse, and dsefs shell commands, dsetool, fs-stress tool, pre-flight check, and yaml_diff tools, and the sstableloader.
DSE Metrics Collector
DSE Metrics Collector aggregates DSE metrics and integrates with centralized monitoring solutions to facilitate problem resolution and remediation.
Available commands for monitoring a cluster and performing routine database operations.
dse commands
The dse commands for starting the database and connecting an external client to a DataStax Enterprise node and performing common utility tasks.
dsefs shell commands
The DSEFS functionality supports operations including uploading, downloading, moving, and deleting files, creating directories, and verifying the DSEFS status.
A list of the available commands for DSE operations.
Stress tools
Tools for stress testing DataStax Enterprise.
SSTable tools
Available diagnostic tools for analyzing, using, upgrading, and changing DataStax Enterprise SSTables.
Preflight check tool
The preflight check tool is a collection of tests that detects and optionally fixes configuration settings on DataStax Enterprise nodes.
Compare yaml files
cluster_check and yaml_diff compare the differences between cassandra.yaml or dse.yaml files.
DataStax Enterprise operation topics, such as node and datacenter operations, changing replication strategies, configuring compaction and compression, caching, and tuning Bloom filters.
Starting and stopping DSE
You can start and stop DataStax Enterprise as a service or stand-alone process.
Clearing data from DSE
Remove all data from any type of installation.
CQL (Cassandra Query Language) is a query language for the DataStax Enterprise database.
