Running Ignite as a Service

If running on Windows 10 WSL or Docker, you should start Apache Ignite as a stand-alone process (not as a service).

To start an Ignite node with a custom configuration, run the following command:

sudo systemctl start apache-ignite@<config_name>

The <config_name> parameter specifies the path to the configuration file relative to the /etc/apache-ignite folder.

To launch the node at system startup, run the following command:

sudo systemctl enable apache-ignite@<config name>
