SQLstream StreamLab is a browser-based application that lets you view and create visualizations of streaming data.

You should install and run StreamLab after Installing SQLstream s-Server.

You can install SQLstream StreamLab using an X-windows wizard. The easiest way to launch the installer is by initiating the installation file from the command line.

The StreamLab installer ships as a binary file - usually named SQLstream-StreamLab-2.0.0 (where X.Y.Z is the version number - for example, 2.0.0) that you acquired either from a SQLstream CD or by downloading it from http://www.sqlstream.com/downloads.

Note: You can also install StreamLab in text-only mode. See Appendix A: Installing StreamLab on the Command Line.

To install StreamLab:

1.From a terminal prompt enter ./SQLstream-StreamLab-X.Y.Z-linux-x64.run.

If the installer does not launch, make sure the file is executable by running chmod +x <filename>.
