Deploying a standalone Ballista cluster using cargo installΒΆ

A simple way to start a local cluster for testing purposes is to use cargo to install the scheduler and executor crates.

cargo install --locked ballista-scheduler
cargo install --locked ballista-executor

With these crates installed, it is now possible to start a scheduler process.

RUST_LOG=info ballista-scheduler

The scheduler will bind to port 50050 by default.

Next, start an executor processes in a new terminal session.

RUST_LOG=info ballista-executor

The executor will bind to port 50051 by default. Additional executors can be started by manually specifying a bind port. For example:

RUST_LOG=info ballista-executor --bind-port 50052
