To connect to the RisingWave server, you will need to install PostgreSQL shell (psql) in advance.


We use kubernetes NodePort service for frontend.

Please get the nodePort of the frontend service as psql port and get the INTERNAL-IP address of any node as follows:

PHOST=`kubectl get node -o=jsonpath='{.items[0].status.addresses[?(@.type=="InternalIP")].address}'`
PPORT=`kubectl get service -n test test-risingwave-amd64-frontend -o=jsonpath='{.spec.ports[0].nodePort}'`

Connect to the frontend by psql as follows:

psql -h $PHOST -p $PPORT -d dev


You can get risingwave-operator configuration as follows:

kubectl get cm risingwave-operator-controller-manager-config -n risingwave-operator-system -oyaml

If you edit the configmap, please kill the risingwave-operator pods and configuration file will be load.
