Running AllegroGraph on Amazon EC2

1. Obtain an Amazon AWS account

If you are new to AWS, you can read the Getting Started with AWS Documentation.

2. Select an AMI

All you need for the next step is the "AMI" identifier in the second column of this table:

3. Start the AMI you selected above

To run an instance with one of the above AMIs go to the AWS Management Console and click on "AMIs" in the left sidebar. Select "Public Images" in the first Filter drop-down menu and enter allegrograph in the search box and press ENTER. You should now see something like this list of AllegroGraph AMIs.

Using the "Name" column, locate the version of AllegroGraph version you want to use. There are two types of AllegroGraph AMIs, instance-store (also called S3) and ebs. This is the type of storage for the root filesystem. You can safely select either.

With the AMI you want to start selected, click on the Launch button. This will guide you through the launch wizard, where you select the instance type (e.g., m1.xlarge) and various other configuration details.

If this is your first time using EC2, you should create a new Security Group in Step 6 of the Launch Wizard. We recommend opening ports 22 (SSH), 10035 (WebView), and 16000-17000 (session ports). . Ports 18000-19000 are used for replication and are optional.

Once you launch the AMI, it will take a few minutes for it to enter the running state. Once it does, you can copy the Public DNS name from the instance Description tab and paste it into a brower, adding :10035 to the end of the host name. In this case we will paste ec2-54-225-60-137.compute-1.amazonaws.com:10035 into a browser so we can login to AllegroGraph's WebView console using the user name "test" and password "xyzzy".

4. Using WebView

Now that we have the instance running and we are connected to it, let's exercise AllegroGraph through the WebView interface.

First, let's create a new repository called sample-actors. On the screen you see just after login, you can enter a repository name and press the Create button. Once created, you can click on the repository name in WebView. The result is an empty repository.

Now, let's load some data into the newly created repository. By clicking on "Import RDF... from a URL" we can enter a URL from which data will be loaded. The source we will use is https://franz.com/s3/actors.ntriples, which is an RDF file containing movie actors. Once the URL is pasted ad select "Multi-core loading" and press OK. The result is 166,497 statements loaded into our new respository. If we click on the "View Statements" link we will see a list of the first 100 triples in the database.
