Quick Start Examples
This section describes quick start commands that launch all Pinot components in a single process.
Pinot ships with QuickStart commands that launch Pinot components in a single process and import pre-built datasets. These QuickStarts are a good place if you're just getting started with Pinot.
macOS Monterey Users
By default the Airplay receiver server runs on port 7000, which is also the port used by the Pinot Server in the Quick Start. You may see the following error when running these examples:
Failed to start a Pinot [SERVER]
java.lang.RuntimeException: java.net.BindException: Address already in use

If you disable the Airplay receiver server and try again, you shouldn't see this error message anymore.

Batch

  • Creates the baseballStats table
  • Launches a standalone data ingestion job that builds one segment for a given CSV data file for the baseballStats table and pushes the segment to the Pinot Controller.
  • Issues sample queries to Pinot
