This checklist gives a general order of operation for configuring a single-node, standalone Gravwell instance. Refer to the Quickstart for additional step-by-step instructions.
□ Install Gravwell via self-extracting installer, Debian/Redhat package, or Docker container (see Quickstart).
□ Verify firewall rules allow incoming traffic on ports used by Gravwell.
□ Use a web browser to access the new Gravwell instance, e.g.
http://gravwell.example.org/, and upload your license file when prompted.
□ Login as “admin”, password “changeme”. Change the default admin password by clicking user icon in upper right.
□ Configure any additional storage wells if desired. (See Gravwell configuration and detailed configuration parameters documentation)
□ Set up ageout on your wells to avoid running out of disk space.
□ Optional: configure TLS for user access and ingester connections.
□ Configure ingesters to bring data into Gravwell.
