Install Promscale from binary
You can install Promscale from a pre-complied binary on any operating systems. The Promscale binary file is available at GitHub releases page.
Before you begin, you must have an already installed and working Prometheus or OpenTelemetry collector environment.
To use Promscale, you need a TimescaleDB database, as well as the Promscale extension. The Promscale extension contains support functions to improve performance of Promscale.

Installing Promscale from binary
At the command prompt, as a root user, download the appropriate file for your operating system (get the URL from the GitHub repository releases page):
curl -L -o promscale https://github.com/timescale/promscale/releases/download/<VERSION>/<PROMSCALE_DISTRIBUTION>
Grant executable permissions to the
chmod +x promscale
Run Promscale by providing the connection details for your TimescaleDB service:
./promscale --db-host <DB_HOSTNAME> --db-port <DB_PORT> --db-name <DBNAME> --db-password <DBPASSWORD> --db-ssl-mode allow
In this example, Promscale is deployed with SSL allowed but not required. If you need SSL mode enabled, configure your TimescaleDB instance with SSL certificates and do not use
--db-ssl-modeflag. Promscale authenticates using SSL by default.
