Quickstart: How to build and run Dremio

(a) Prerequisites

  • JDK 8 (OpenJDK or Oracle)
  • (Optional) Maven 3.3.9 or later (using Homebrew: brew install maven)

Run the following commands to verify that you have the correct versions of Maven and JDK installed:

java -version
mvn --version

(b) Clone the Repository

git clone dremio

(c) Build the Code

cd dremio
mvn clean install -DskipTests (or ./mvnw clean install -DskipTests if maven is not installed on the machine)

The "-DskipTests" option skips most of the tests. Running all tests takes a long time.

(d) Run/Install


distribution/server/target/dremio-community-{DREMIO_VERSION}/dremio-community-{DREMIO_VERSION}/bin/dremio start

OR to start a server with a default user (dremio/dremio123)

mvn compile exec:exec -pl dac/daemon

Once run, the UI is accessible at:


Production Install

(1) Unpack the tarball to install.
mkdir /opt/dremio
tar xvzf distribution/server/target/*.tar.gz --strip=1 -C /opt/dremio
(2) Start Dremio Embedded Mode
cd /opt/dremio

OSS Only

To have the best possible experience with Dremio, we include a number of dependencies when building Dremio that are distributed under non-oss free (as in beer) licenses. Examples include drivers for major databases such as Oracle Database, Microsoft SQL Server, MySQL as well as enhancements to improve source pushdowns and thread scheduling. If you'd like to only include dependencies with OSS licenses, Dremio will continue to work but some features will be unavailable (such as connecting to databases that rely on these drivers).

To build dremio with only OSS dependencies, you can add the following option to your Maven commandline: -Ddremio.oss-only=true

The distribution directory will be distribution/server/target/dremio-oss-{DREMIO_VERSION}/dremio-oss-{DREMIO_VERSION}
