Aerospike Admin


Aerospike Admin provides an interface for Aerospike users to view the stat of their Aerospike Cluster by fetching information from a running cluster (Cluster mode) a collectinfo file (Collectinfo-Analyzer), or logs (Log-analyser mode). To get started run asadm and issue the help command. The full documentation can be found here.


The Aerospike Admin repo now contains asinfo. Asinfo has been a long time member of the Aerospike Tools package and is now built together with asadm. Asinfo provides a raw interface to Aerospike info protocol and is useful for debugging and development. The full documentation can be found here.

Build and Install Aerospike Admin

Runtime Dependencies

There are no runtime dependencies. This is because the python interpreter is now bundled with asadm version 2.6 and later.

Build Dependencies

  • python 3.10
  • pipenv

Build and Install Asadm

  1. Install python 3.10
  2. Install pipenv
  3. Initialize submodules git submodule update --init
  4. Build Asadm
    • There are two ways asadm can be bundled: one-file and one-dir. Both, are related to pyinstaller's two methods of bundling. The one-file build is great if you want a single executable artifact. The downside of one-file is that it must decompress into a /tmp directory in order to execute. This causes a number of problems. On macOS, the startup time is drastically increased because of the codesigning mechanism. The /tmp directory must be mounted with the the exec option. If the above scenarios describe your environment then use the one-dir build.
      • one-dir (default)
        make one-dir
      • one-file
        make one-file
  5. Install asadm
    sudo make install

Asadm has unit, integration, and e2e tests. Tests also support code coverage reporting.


  • The e2e tests depend on docker.
  • The e2e tests depend on a aerospike features.conf file to run Aerospike Enterprise Edition.
  • Run pipenv install --dev.

Running Unit Tests
