Module tarantool

By saying require('tarantool'), one can answer some questions about how the tarantool server was built, such as “what flags were used”, or “what was the version of the compiler”.

Additionally one can see the uptime and the server version and the process id. Those information items can also be accessed with box.info() but use of the tarantool module is recommended.

Example:

tarantool> tarantool = require('tarantool')
---
...
tarantool> tarantool
