Three-node cluster with a single binary

First, download a prebuilt copy of TigerBeetle.

On macOS/Linux:

git clone; ./tigerbeetle/

On Windows:

git clone; .\tigerbeetle\bootstrap.ps1

Want to build from source locally? Add -build as an argument to the bootstrap script.

Running TigerBeetle

Now create the TigerBeetle data file for each replica

./tigerbeetle format --cluster=0 --replica=0 --replica-count=3 0_0.tigerbeetle
./tigerbeetle format --cluster=0 --replica=1 --replica-count=3 0_1.tigerbeetle
./tigerbeetle format --cluster=0 --replica=2 --replica-count=3 0_2.tigerbeetle

And start each server in a new terminal window:

./tigerbeetle start --addresses=3000,3001,3002 0_0.tigerbeetle
./tigerbeetle start --addresses=3000,3001,3002 0_1.tigerbeetle
./tigerbeetle start --addresses=3000,3001,3002 0_2.tigerbeetle

TigerBeetle uses the --replica that's stored in the data file as an index into the --addresses provided.

Connect with the CLI

Now you can connect to the running server with any client. For a quick start, try creating accounts and transfers using the TigerBeetle CLI client.
