Create New BucketFS Service

In order to use buckets, you need to first have a BucketFS Service created which will contain buckets. Exasol provides a default BucketFS service pre-installed for the configured data disk. This default BucketFS service includes a default bucket which contains pre-installed script languages (Java, Python, R). Additionally, you can also create and configure any number buckets within this BucketFS. However, for storing larger user data we highly recommend to create a separate BucketFS instance on a separate partition.

To you create a new BucketFS service follow these steps:

  1. In EXAoperation, go to Services > EXABuckets. The EXABucketFS Services screen is displayed.
  2. The following table provides you with the description for each of the fields in the EXABucketFS Services screen: 

    Column Field Description
    ID Displays the ID of the bucket.
    Disk Displays the disk on which this bucket is located.

    Displays the port number, if configured.

    The default port for BucketFS service is 2580.

    HTTPS Displays the port number, if configured.
    Size per node Displays the overall size of the bucket across all nodes.
    Description Displays the description added for the bucket.

  3. Click Add to add a new BucketFS service.
  4. The Add EXABucketFS Service screen is displayed. Enter the following details: 
    • Data Disk: Select the data disk where you would like to store data of the bucket.
    • HTTP Port: The HTTP port number.
    • HTTPS Port: The HTTPS port number.
    • Description: Enter a description for the bucket.

  5. Click Add to add the BucketFS service.

You can view the created BucketFS service listed in the EXABucketFS Services screen. Some of the other operations you can perform on a BucketFS include editing it by selecting the radio button next to the BucketFS and then clicking the Edit button or delete a BucketFS by clicking the Delete button.

Next Steps

Now that you have a BucketFS service created, you can start creating new buckets to store files or data within this BucketFS service. For more information, refer to the Create New Buckets in BucketFS Service section.
