Run Utility Commands in a Cluster

You can run the nodeinfo command on a cluster node to get information about it.


nodeinfo [is_master | master_ip | master_public_dns]

nodeinfo is_master reports if the node is a Coordinator or Worker in boolean format (1/0).

nodeinfo master_ip reports the public IP address of the coordinator node.

nodeinfo master_public_dns reports the public DNS address of the coordinator node.

Add $(nodeinfo master_public_dns) to a node bootstrap script or any shell script to get the public DNS hostname of the Coordinator node.

See Understanding a Node Bootstrap Script for more information.

You can also use the QDS GUI to see the public and private IP addresses of worker and Coordinator nodes: navigate to the Control Panel > Clusters and click on the number in the Nodes column of a running cluster.

On a cluster node, run the nodeinfo command to check if the node is a worker or Coordinator or get the Coordinator node’s IP address and public DNS address. Here is an example illustration of running the nodeinfo command on an AWS cluster node:

[ec2-user@ip-10-111-11-11 /]$ nodeinfo is_master
[ec2-user@ip-10-111-11-11 /]$ nodeinfo master_ip
[ec2-user@ip-10-111-11-11 /]$ nodeinfo master_public_dns
[ec2-user@ip-10-111-11-11 /]$
