Continuing my effort of keeping track of useful and short guides (more for myself than others), here you have the one to setup Apache Flink quickly.
Note: this installation does not require sudo, is for a single-node cluster (with JAVA_HOME set and Java up to date) with out-of-the-box configuration and DOES NOT use HDFS.
Connect to your server
ssh -L 8081:localhost:8081 username@server
Create a directory for storm and enter it
Download Apache Flink and unzip it
wget http://apache.mirrors.spacedump.net/flink/flink-1.0.3/flink-1.0.3-bin-hadoop1-scala_2.10.tgz (or the appropriate version)
tar -xvf flink-1.0.3-bin-hadoop1-scala_2.10.tgz
Open your web browser and go to localhost:8081. Do you see the UI? good…
- Have a look at conf/flink-conf.yaml and conf/slaves and to understand (i) what is going on and (ii) why the installation is so straightforward (read: what parameters are already set for you)
- Read https://ci.apache.org/projects/flink/flink-docs-release-1.0/setup/cluster_setup.html!
