Installing RonDB#

RonDB is delivered as binary tarballs that you can download from either the RonDB github web page or on

Before installing RonDB it is a good idea to create a rondb user on your machine using the following command:

sudo groupadd rondb
sudo useradd -g rondb -s /bin/bash rondb

We propose to create the rondb user with bash as shell script since the RonDB benchmark scripts are written in shell scripts using bash.

Next download RonDB:

mkdir tmp
cd tmp
sudo tar -C /usr/local -xfz rondb-21.04.3-linux-glibc2.17-x86_64.tar.gz
sudo ln -s /usr/local/rondb-21.04.3-linux-glibc2.17-x86_64 /usr/local/rondb
export PATH=/usr/local/rondb/bin:$PATH
export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/rondb/lib:$LD_LIBRARY_PATH

Alternatively if LD_LIBRARY_PATH is empty you can use this command:

export LD_LIBRARY_PATH=/usr/local/rondb/lib

Now RonDB is installed and you are ready to learn how to start RonDB programs and how to write some basic configuration files and get started using the open source version of RonDB. It's even easier to use the managed RonDB version.
