Running the SQream SQL Client

The following example shows how to run the SQream SQL client:

$ sqream sql --port=5000 --username=rhendricks -d master

Interactive client mode
To quit, use ^D or \q.

master=> _

Running the SQream SQL client prompts you to provide your password. Use the username and password that you have set up, or your DBA has provided.


  • You can exit the shell by typing \q or Ctrl-d.

  • A new SQream cluster contains a database named master, which is the database used in the examples on this page.
