Notes for operating systems

On macOS, no native system tools for administering Tarantool are supported. The recommended way to administer Tarantool instances is using tt CLI.

The section below is about a dev-db/tarantool package installed from the official layman overlay (named tarantool).

The default instance directory is /etc/tarantool/instances.available, can be redefined in /etc/default/tarantool.

Tarantool instances can be managed (start/stop/reload/status/…) using OpenRC. Consider the example how to create an OpenRC-managed instance:

$ cd /etc/init.d
$ ln -s tarantool your_service_name
$ ln -s /usr/share/tarantool/your_service_name.lua /etc/tarantool/instances.available/your_service_name.lua

Checking that it works:

$ /etc/init.d/your_service_name start
$ tail -f -n 100 /var/log/tarantool/your_service_name.log

To learn about specifics of using the deprecated tarantoolctl utility on FreeBSD, check its documentation.
