Installation and Setup Guide

There are two ways to install BeeGFS: GUI-based (using a graphical Java interface) or manually (using shell commands).

The graphical installation is based on the BeeGFS Admon ("Administration and Monitoring") service, to which the graphical Java interface connects. In general, the GUI-based installation is recommended only for inexperienced users, because it does not provide the full flexibility of a manual installation (e.g. several configuration settings are not available and installation into an image is not supported by the GUI-based installation procedure).

If you are familiar with the Linux command line, it is recommended to perform the manual installation. Of course, you can still use the graphical interface to view usage statistics after a manual installation, if you want to.
