Build Status Docker Repository on Quay.io

etcd Logo

etcd is a distributed, consistent key value store for shared configuration and service discovery with a focus on being:

  • Simple: curl'able user facing API (HTTP+JSON)
  • Secure: optional SSL client cert authentication
  • Fast: benchmarked 1000s of writes/s per instance
  • Reliable: properly distributed using Raft

etcd is written in Go and uses the Raft consensus algorithm to manage a highly-available replicated log.

See etcdctl for a simple command line client. Or feel free to just use curl, as in the examples below.

If you're considering etcd for production use, please see: production-ready.md

Getting Started

Getting etcd

The latest release and setup instructions are available at GitHub.

You can build a latest etcd from master branch. All development occurs on the master branch which includes new features and bug fixes.

Bug fixes should target the master branch and ported to the appropriate release branch as described in the branch management guide.

Running etcd

First start a single-member cluster of etcd:

./bin/etcd

This will bring up etcd listening on port 2379 for client communication and on port 2380 for server-to-server communication.

Next, let's set a single key, and then retrieve it:

curl -L http://127.0.0.1:2379/v2/keys/mykey -XPUT -d value="this is awesome"
curl -L http://127.0.0.1:2379/v2/keys/mykey

You have successfully started an etcd and written a key to the store.

Running local etcd cluster

First install goreman, which manages Procfile-based applications.

Our Procfile script will set up a local example cluster. You can start it with:

goreman start

This will bring up 3 etcd members infra1, infra2 and infra3 and etcd proxy proxy, which runs locally and composes a cluster.

You can write a key to the cluster and retrieve the value back from any member or proxy.

Next Steps

Now it's time to dig into the full etcd API and other guides.

Versioning

Service Versioning

etcd uses semantic versioning New minor versions may add additional features to the API.

You can get the version of etcd by issuing a request to /version:

curl -L http://127.0.0.1:2379/version

API Versioning

The v2 API responses should not change after the 2.0.0 release but new features will be added over time.

32-bit systems

etcd has known issues on 32-bit systems due to a bug in the Go runtime. See #358 for more information.
