You can install Promscale from source on any operating system. The Promscale source files are available from our GitHub releases page.
Before you begin, you must have an already installed and working Prometheus environment. Additionally, you need a self-hosted TimescaleDB instance installed.
Installing TimescaleDB to use with Promscale requires the TimescaleDB database, as well as the Promscale extension. The Promscale extension contains support functions to improve performance of Promscale. While Promscale runs without it, it is strongly recommended that you install the Promscale extension.
In this procedure, you download the Promscale binaries and run them.
At the command prompt, as root, download the appropriate source files 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 on 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
--db-ssl-modeflag. Promscale authenticates using SSL by default.
