Deploying a standalone Ballista cluster using cargo install¶
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.
The scheduler will bind to port 50050 by default.
Next, start an executor processes in a new terminal session.
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
