Deployment notes

Here are some good to know things about deploying Skytable:

  • Skytable is under active development. If you do find any rough edges, please open an issue
  • The daemon will create a .sky_pid file in its working directory which functions as a PID file and indicates other processes to not use the data directory. If the daemon is somehow forcefully stopped, the file may not be removed. In that case, you should manually remove the file
  • Skytable currently has a default limit of 50000 connections on a single daemon instance. This limit can be modified by setting the maxcon in the configuration file.
    note

    Make sure you change maxcon according to the available system resources to avoid attacks that may cause your system to crash

  • Skytable is inherently multithreaded. As of now, there is no way to stop Skytable from using multiple threads
  • The best way to deploy Skytable is as a service (and passing --noart to avoid terminal artwork in logs)
