Control Center Binary Package

Downloading and Installing the Binary Package

  1. Obtain the Control Center 2024.2 binaries and license from our Sales.

  2. Unpack the archive into a directory of your choice (“installation directory”).

  3. Once you have unpacked the package, launch Control Center by running control-center.sh (or control-center.bat for Windows) in the installation directory.

Control Center starts with the default configuration and listens on the default port (3000). Open http://localhost:3000 in your browser and sign up for an account.

Explicitly Defining Your Work Folder

By default, Control Center stores all data in $CC_ROOT/work. However, we recommend using a folder outside of the default location to simplify update/upgrade operations. To change the default work folder, do one of the following:

  • Define the IGNITE_WORK_DIR environment variable; for example:

    IGNITE_WORK_DIR=/path/to/cc/work $CC_ROOT/control-center.sh

    Define the JAVA_OPTS env variable; for example:

    JAVA_OPTS="${JAVA_OPTS} -DIGNITE_WORK_DIR=/path/to/cc/work" $CC_ROOT/control-center.sh

  • Explicitly define the work folder in $CC_ROOT/ignite-config.xml:

    <bean class="org.apache.ignite.configuration.IgniteConfiguration">
        ...
        <property name="workDirectory" value="/your/path/to/cc-work"/>

Setting Control Center URI

The Control Center URI is the URI where the GridGain Control Center is running. Your clusters will need to know this URI to be able to establish connection with Control Center.

Set the URI by using the management script:

{GRIDGAIN_HOME}/bin/management.sh --uri http://localhost:3000

Note the ID of the cluster in the node output. You will need it to add the cluster in the Control Center UI. See Connecting a Cluster.

You can also set the URI in System Properties: -Dcontrol.center.agent.uris=https://portal-test.gridgain.com.

Open Port Requirements

To ensure proper Control Center operation, port 3000 must be open for the system’s backend.

SSL Configuration

To configure SSL for the on-premise version of GridGain Control Center:

  1. Create an application.properties file in the Control Center root folder.

  2. Add the following lines to the file:

    server.port=
    server.ssl.client-auth=need
    server.ssl.protocol=TLS
    server.ssl.key-store-type=JKS
    server.ssl.key-store=node.jks
    server.ssl.key-store-password={safe_password}
    server.ssl.trust-store-type=JKS
    server.ssl.trust-store=trust.jks
    server.ssl.trust-store-password={safe_password}
  3. Run the following command:

    bash control-center.sh
  4. Control Center will be started at http://localhost:3000.
