2.Point your browser to localhost:5590 (or whatever server StreamLab is running on).

Before you start StreamLab, you need to have both s-Server and WebAgent running. This version of StreamLab checks to see if WebAgent is running before starting.

For information on running s-Server, see Getting Started Guide.

For information on running WebAgent, see the topic WebAgent in the Integration Guide.

Note: WebAgent must be running with write enabled (-w).

To start StreamLab in other cases, open the StreamLab folder on your desktop and double-click the Start StreamLab Server icon.

Alternately, run the following script, located in the /opt/sqlstream/2.xxxx directory:



To start the service as root, enter
