System administration

In the following sections, we explore general system administration options with Skytable such as configuration, user management, system health and others. Please note that to use some of these guides you may need direct access to the host on which the database server is running; operations such as recovery and changing the root password require host access.


Here's an overview of the different administration guides:

  • Configuration: Understand how Skytable can be configured using command-line arguments, environment variables or a configuration file and what all configuration options are available
  • User management: Learn about account types, permissions and how you can manage multiple users
  • Global management: Learn how to check system health and manage the global state of your database instances
  • Data recovery: Understand what to do after a system crash and how to recover data if needed
