If you want to build from source, you can clone the source code to your local machine, then go to the root directory of sources, let’s say ~/jstorm, then use: mvn clean package assembly:assembly -Dmaven.test.skip=true to build, you can find the tgz file under ~/jstorm/target directory.


Then edit $JSTORM_HOME/conf/storm.yaml, please refer to JStorm Configuration for more details.

Start JStorm

  • Run nohup jstorm nimbus & in the nimbus node, view $JSTORM_HOME/logs/nimbus.log to check if any errors.
  • Run nohup jstorm supervisor >/dev/null 2>&1 & in the supervisor node, and keep an eye on $JSTORM_HOME/logs/supervisor.log to check if any errors.

  • You can also use $JSTORM_HOME/bin/ to start nimbus & supervisor(within the same machine) simultaneously. Use $JSTORM_HOME/bin/ to stop nimbus & supervisor simultaneously.
