Managing the Weka System

This page describes the various ways to manage Weka system.

The Weka system is now installed. Now let's learn how to view, manage and operate it using either the CLI or the GUI, and perform the first IO to a WekaFS filesystem.


The Weka CLI is installed on each Weka host and is available through the weka command. It's possible tossh one of the hosts and run the weka command. This displays a list of all available top-level commands. You can go ahead and explore them.

# weka
weka [<args>...] [options]
weka --agent
Base command for all the weka related CLIs
The available subcommands are:
status Weka cluster status
alerts List and manage active alerts
events Commands for reading events and managing events settings
stats Commands for reading system statistics
cluster Commands that manage the cluster
fs Commands that manage filesystems, snapshots and filesystem-groups
nfs Commands that manage client-groups, permissions and interface-groups
cloud Cloud commands
user Manage users and login
local Commands that control weka and its containers on the local machine
version Commands that manager the installed weka versions on the host
agent Commands that control the weka agent (outside the weka containers)
smb Commands for setting up and managing smb shares and users
diags Commands for collecting weka-related diagnostics for support

For more information about the CLI, refer to Getting Started with Weka CLI.


The Weka GUI is accessible at port 14000. It can be accessed from any host or by using the cluster name. For example: http://weka-host-0:14000 or http://weka-host:14000.

Note: If it's not possible to access the GUI, make sure that it has been opened in your firewall, as described in the Prerequisites page.

Weka Login Page

The initial default username/password is admin/admin, as described in User Management. It is recommended to change this.
