Latest Stable Version: 7.0 | Release Date: May 29, 2018 | Changelog | Repository 
New releases will be announced on the low volume beegfs-announce mailing list.

Installation Methods

Automatic Graphical Installation
  • First, download and install the Admon daemon package for your Linux distribution.
  • Then access the Admon daemon with a webbrowser (http://<your_admon_host>:8000/) to download and run the Java-based graphical control frontend for the Admon daemon.

The automatic graphical installation is designed for inexperienced users and only provides a very limited set of options to keep it simple. If command line usage is not a problem for you, it is recommended to use the manual installation below (which is also very easy).

Detailed instructions for the graphical installation procedure and package download links can be found in the Admon Installation Guide.

Manual Installation
  • First, add the BeeGFS package repository to your system.
  • Then download the corresponding server or client packages to your nodes
    and set the basic configuration parameters.
In case you are already familiar with BeeGFS or just want to see a short quick-start installation reference, you might want to jump directly to the Installation Commands Walk-Through Example.

Detailed instructions for the manual installation procedure and repository URLs can be found in the Manual Installation Guide.

Direct Download

If you want to download repository files or BeeGFS packages directly, you can find them here.

Note: If you want to run BeeGFS on a platform, for which you can’t find the appropriate packages here, you might want to build BeeGFS from source for your system. It’s easy.
