The full package of TDengine includes the server(taosd), taosAdapter for connecting with third-party systems and providing a RESTful interface, client driver(taosc), command-line program(CLI, taos) and some tools. For the current version, the server taosd and taosAdapter can only be installed and run on Linux systems. In the future taosd and taosAdapter will also be supported on Windows, macOS and other systems. The client driver taosc and TDengine CLI can be installed and run on Windows or Linux. In addition to the connectors of multiple languages, RESTful interface is also provided by taosAdapter in TDengine. Prior to version 184.108.40.206, however, there is no taosAdapter, the RESTful interface is provided by the built-in HTTP service of taosd.
TDengine supports X64/ARM64/MIPS64/Alpha64 hardware platforms, and will support ARM32, RISC-V and other CPU architectures in the future.

Then you can execute the Linux commands and access TDengine.
For detailed steps, please visit Experience TDengine via Docker。
Starting from 220.127.116.11，besides taosd，TDengine docker image includes: taos，taosAdapter，taosdump，taosBenchmark，TDinsight, scripts and sample code. Once the TDengine container is started，it will start both taosAdapter and taosd automatically to support RESTful interface.
apt-get can be used to install TDengine from official package repository.
wget -qO - http://repos.taosdata.com/tdengine.key | sudo apt-key add -
echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://repos.taosdata.com/tdengine-stable stable main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tdengine-stable.list
The repository required for installing beta versions can be configured as below:
echo "deb [arch=amd64] http://repos.taosdata.com/tdengine-beta beta main" | sudo tee /etc/apt/sources.list.d/tdengine-beta.list
Install With apt-get
sudo apt-get update
apt-cache policy tdengine
sudo apt-get install tdengine
apt-get can only be used on Debian or Ubuntu Linux.
It's very easy to install TDengine and would take you only a few minutes from downloading to finishing installation.
For the convenience of users, from version 18.104.22.168, the standard server side installation package includes
taosBenchmark and sample code. If only the
taosd server and C/C++ connector are required, you can also choose to download the lite package.
Three kinds of packages are provided, tar.gz, rpm and deb. Especially the tar.gz package is provided for the convenience of enterprise customers on different kinds of operating systems, it includes
taosdump and TDinsight installation script which are normally only provided in taos-tools rpm and deb packages.
Between two major release versions, some beta versions may be delivered for users to try some new features.
For the details please refer to Install and Uninstall。
If you like to check the source code, build the package by yourself or contribute to the project, please check TDengine GitHub Repository
After installation, you can launch the TDengine service by the 'systemctl' command to start 'taosd'.
systemctl start taosd
Check if taosd is running：
systemctl status taosd
If everything is fine, you can run TDengine command-line interface
taos to access TDengine and test it out yourself.
- systemctl requires root privileges，if you are not root ，please add sudo before the command.
- To get feedback and keep improving the product, TDengine is collecting some basic usage information, but you can turn it off by setting telemetryReporting to 0 in configuration file taos.cfg.
- TDengine uses FQDN (usually hostname）as the ID for a node. To make the system work, you need to configure the FQDN for the server running taosd, and configure the DNS service or hosts file on the the machine where the application or TDengine CLI runs to ensure that the FQDN can be resolved.
systemctl stop taosdwon't stop the server right away, it will wait until all the data in memory are flushed to disk. It may takes time depending on the cache size.
TDengine supports the installation on system which runs
systemd for process management，use
which systemctl to check if the system has
If the system does not have
systemd，you can start TDengine manually by executing
Command Line Interface
To manage the TDengine running instance，or execute ad-hoc queries, TDengine provides a Command Line Interface (hereinafter referred to as TDengine CLI) taos. To enter into the interactive CLI，execute
taos on a Linux terminal where TDengine is installed.
If it connects to the TDengine server successfully, it will print out the version and welcome message. If it fails, it will print out the error message, please check FAQ for trouble shooting connection issue. TDengine CLI's prompt is：
Inside TDengine CLI，you can execute SQL commands to create/drop database/table, and run queries. The SQL command must be ended with a semicolon. For example:
create database demo;
create table t (ts timestamp, speed int);
insert into t values ('2019-07-15 00:00:00', 10);
insert into t values ('2019-07-15 01:00:00', 20);
select * from t;
ts | speed |
2019-07-15 00:00:00.000 | 10 |
2019-07-15 01:00:00.000 | 20 |
Query OK, 2 row(s) in set (0.003128s)
Besides executing SQL commands, system administrators can check running status, add/drop user accounts and manage the running instances. TAOS CLI with client driver can be installed and run on either Linux or Windows machines. For more details on CLI, please check here.
Experience the blazing fast speed
After TDengine server is running，execute
taosBenchmark (previously named taosdemo) from a Linux terminal：
This command will create a super table "meters" under database "test". Under "meters", 10000 tables are created with names from "d0" to "d9999". Each table has 10000 rows and each row has four columns (ts, current, voltage, phase). Time stamp is starting from "2017-07-14 10:40:00 000" to "2017-07-14 10:40:09 999". Each table has tags "location" and "groupId". groupId is set 1 to 10 randomly, and location is set to "beijing" or "shanghai".
This command will insert 100 million rows into the database quickly. Time to insert depends on the hardware configuration, it only takes a dozen seconds for a regular PC server.
taosBenchmark provides command-line options and a configuration file to customize the scenarios, like number of tables, number of rows per table, number of columns and more. Please execute
taosBenchmark --help to list them. For details on running taosBenchmark, please check reference for taosBenchmark
Experience query speed
After using taosBenchmark to insert a number of rows data, you can execute queries from TDengine CLI to experience the lightning fast query speed.
query the total number of rows under super table "meters"：
taos> select count(*) from test.meters;
query the average, maximum, minimum of 100 million rows:
taos> select avg(current), max(voltage), min(phase) from test.meters;
query the total number of rows with location="beijing":
taos> select count(*) from test.meters where location="beijing";
query the average, maximum, minimum of all rows with groupId=10:
taos> select avg(current), max(voltage), min(phase) from test.meters where groupId=10;
query the average, maximum, minimum for table d10 in 10 seconds time interval：
taos> select avg(current), max(voltage), min(phase) from test.d10 interval(10s);
