Windows 10: Consul, Kafka, Zookeeper, or Kafka-Rest did not start
Problem: You get an error message similar to:
ERROR: for consul Cannot start service consul: b'driver failed programming external connectivity on endpoint sp-test_consul_1 (eae0457fc03c1364b8e81a6e155ca4b95ee1e1d01bb3c1aa9dd5192bdcb7b91a): Error starting userland proxy: mkdir /port/tcp:0.0.0.0:8600:tcp:172.30.0.9:8600: input/output error
Solution: To resolve this problem, stop StreamPipes with
streampipes stop and restart Docker via the Docker settings in the task bar.
After Docker was restarted, run
Consul does not start
Problem: After starting StreamPipes with
streampipes start, there is an error with Consul:
Solution: To resolve this, execute
streampipes stop, wait a minute and start it again with
streampipes start. If you've installed an old version of StreamPipes (before the installer was available), make sure that no network suffixed with
spnet exists in Docker. Type
docker network ls to check and
docker network rm NETWORK_NAME to remove the existing network before running the installer.
Run StreamPipes in a VM in Windows
Problem: StreamPipes does not work properly with Docker under Windows 8 or earlier versions.
Solution: We do support virtual machines (VMs), but if you run them under Windows, there might be problems with docker and its network configurations. Please use Windows 10, OSX or Linux. You can also use a VM from a cloud provider to test StreamPipes.
Only few processors are available in the pipeline editor
Problem: In the Pipeline Editor, only a few processors can be used in pipelines.
Solution: In the demo/desktop version, we only integrated a few processors. To ensure that you can easily try out StreamPipes (even on your laptop), we tried to make it as lightweight as possible. If you are interested in more sophisticated algorithms, pleas contact us.
No data is shown in the live dashboard
Problem: The live dashboard does not show any data.
Solution: If this is the case, your IP is probably configured wrong.
You can reinstall the system by running
streampipes clean and then
streampipes start again.
This will delete all StreamPipes configurations. StreamPipes is designed as a server application and requires a fixed IP.
We created a version to easily run it on your laptop and test it, but on your laptop you usually get a new IP when you change the network.
This problem only occurs in testing scenarios, in production scenarios the IP can also be changed manually without data loss.
Windows 10: Should I use settings windows containers or docker containers
Problem: StreamPipes does not work with Windows 10.
Solution: You should use docker containers. Go to the docker settings on our taks bar and select 'Switch to Docker containers'.
